The country is in a state of emergency. For the first time in history, people from all over the world are working together to try and overcome the coronavirus crisis and save lives. In the UK, the focus has been on trying to help our beloved NHS function as best as it possibly can.
The strain that the virus has been posing meant the nation was sent into lockdown to delay the number of people requiring medical attention. One solution to help the NHS was to transform the ExCel Centre in London into the NHS Nightingale Hospital to assist with patients suffering from COVID-19.
The tremendous efforts to build coronavirus-dedicated hospitals in China demonstrated that the enormous task was possible, but the right organisations needed to be hired to carry out the task. The NHS sent out a plea for engineers to head to London and help with the development. Multiple companies needed to come together to assist clinical engineers with tasks that would make this plan a national success.
