The Covid-19 rehabilitation hospital has welcomed its first patients. The 130-bed hospital was created in a matter of weeks by teams from the NHS, Surrey County Council and the Ministry of Defence.
This BBC report from inside the NHS Seacole Centre was broadcast on June 4th. The report also features comment from Fetcham GP Dr Hilary Floyd, who is the hospital's clinical director. The hospital, which could be expanded to 300 beds, is partnership led by Epsom and St Helier Hospital Trust, Surrey Downs Health and Care, and local GP practices.
Until September 2018, Headley Court was the home of the Joint Services Medical Rehabilitation Centre. The site is now owned by Angle Properties.
The Seacole Centre is named in honour of the Jamaican-born pioneering nurse Mary Seacole.
