The Ministry of Defence has supported the NHS in several ways. This has included a significant contribution to the opening of the Nightingale Hospitals as a measure to ensure the NHS can meet the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Over the course of the past three months, Defence has deployed over 500 military personnel to support the design and build of these temporary hospitals, providing infrastructure, logistics and project management advice.
