The Government’s priority is to ensure that those people repatriated by the United Kingdom Government are made as comfortable as possible throughout the duration of the 14-day period to monitor their health and to protect the public.

They will have access to a team of medical staff who will closely monitor their condition.

The team at this site is able to ensure that infection control remains at the highest standard and that individuals have access to specialist care if required. It also allows the health of those in the group to be regularly monitored and has the necessary medical facilities close at hand should they be required.
