By kind permission of the owner, the former defence medical rehabilitation centre has been used as the NHS Seacole Centre during the COVID-19 crisis - named after Mary Seacole, a pioneering nurse who set up the British Hotel behind front lines of the Crimean War to help sick and injured soldiers recover. By honouring the British-Jamaican nurse, the hospital’s name also serves as a tribute to the NHS’ BAME staff who are working on the frontline of the UK’s fight against COVID-19. The former military hospital function of the site has been relocated to a purpose-built facility in Leicestershire.
The proposals for the east side of the site have recently been revised to reflect a mixed care home and hospital use, reflecting the site’s use as a COVID-19 facility, however the proposals remain under development and are subject to further changes.
