Covid19 Overspill Hospital Drain Surveys

Drain Alert have recently been working on a number of satellite hospitals being converted to Covid 19 Wards. One being Lilycross  Care Home in Widnes whichh has been converted to form an important part of a wider out of hospital project happening across Cheshire and Merseyside to provide additional capacity in the community, freeing up much needed bed space in local hospitals. Halton council commissioned the project at the beginning of April, as part of its commitment to supporting the Halton population during the outbreak of Covid-19.
