NHS England and NHS Improvement Coronavirus update

The last of the guests staying at Arrowe Park after returning from China have left the hospital, NHS England and NHS Improvement announced today.

All but one of the patients being treated at other NHS Trusts have now been discharged after twice testing negative for coronavirus.

More than 100 guests remain at the Kents Hill Park Hotel, Milton Keynes.

Professor Keith Willett, NHS strategic incident director, said: “The last guests have left Arrowe Park hospital and I would once again like to thank them for the calm, patient and responsible way that they have responded to what must have been a trying situation.

“Over the coming weeks many more of us may need to spend some time at home to reduce the spread of the virus and they have set a great example.

“I would like to thank all those NHS staff and partners, as well as Public Health England, who have worked so hard to make their stay as comfortable as possible, those still caring for guests in Milton Keynes and all the doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals who have successfully treated patients at other hospitals.

“We must not forget the local residents, council staff, volunteers and numerous others who have rallied round to help our guests in their time of need. Thank you all.”
