A fully-stretched and underfunded NHS trust is transferring Covid-19 patients to one of the government’s emergency Nightingale Hospitals.

University Hospitals Dorset (UHD) NHS Trust said its hospitals in Bournemouth and Poole were “absolutely full” and “on a knife-edge”.

According to the BBC, the number of patients has risen from “more than 350” to “about 380” in the past week, it reported.

Up to 10 patients are due to be moved to the Nightingale Hospital in Exeter.

The move will allow the Dorset hospitals to continue accepting emergency admissions
