Ventilators From The Set Of ‘Holby City’ Have Been Donated To London’s NHS Nightingale Hospital

Ventilators

Medical equipment from the BBC drama arrived earlier this weekend.

Everyone’s chipping in with the coronavirus relief efforts, whether it be Glastonbury donating medical supplies, Royal Museums Greenwich offering protective clothing, or Selfridges giving 1600 Easter eggs to NHS workers. Now, TV drama Holby City is getting in on the action, as they’ve donated ventilators from their set to London’s new hospital NHS Nightingale. (Featured image: BBC Studios, via Twitter)

Having welcomed its first patients earlier this week, NHS Nightingale is now equipped to support up to 4000 coronavirus patients. However, with a worldwide shortage of ventilators causing some consternation, every unit can make the difference between a full recovery and a sad demise. Holby City’s ventilators are fully operational, and whilst they’re only able to offer a handful (the exact amount hasn’t been specified), it’s another useful step in helping to mitigate the worst effects of the outbreak.
