Stadium officially opens for North Mid Hospital Women's Outpatient Services
Wed 15 April 2020, 16:30|Tottenham Hotspur
Yesterday (Tuesday 14 April) saw our Tottenham Hotspur Stadium open its doors for the first time to patients of North Middlesex Hospital's Women's Outpatient Services.
On Monday, we announced that our stadium had been re-purposed and fitted out to house these services on behalf of North Middlesex Hospital, freeing up much-needed capacity at the hospital itself to treat patients with COVID-19 symptoms, whilst supporting the redirection of pregnant women away from the hospital during the pandemic.
This has resulted in recognisable areas of our stadium being transformed for clinical use:
• Our Media Entrance and Café as a main reception and welfare area for visitors and NHS staff
• The NFL Away changing room areas used as a Maternal Day Unit
• Our Flash interview rooms off of the players’ tunnel – where post-match TV interviews are normally conducted – as well as the referees’ area, used as consultation and scanning rooms
• Our Auditorium – where managers conduct their post-match press conferences – utilised as an NHS staff briefing space
• The football Away dressing room area being used as a Midwives Clinical Room and staff Admin Office
The Women’s Outpatient Clinic operates Monday-Saturday and will see up to 70 patients visit our stadium every day with up to 30 staff on site at any one time.
