Nuneaton hospital's 'don't worry' warning if you spot huge 999 presence today

Nuneaton's hospital says locals should not 'worry' if they spot a huge 999 presence around the site today. The George Eliot Hospital is set to play home to a major incident response exercise later tonight (May 30).

As part of this, there will be a larger 999 presence which may be spotted from Heath End Road. Bosses at the 'Eliot have been quick to tell people if they see this, there is no need to worry.

"We want to help limit any alarm caused about a major incident response exercise," a spokesperson said, adding it will run from 10pm until around midnight.

"As part of this there will be an increase in personnel, emergency service vehicles and equipment around our emergency department from Heath End Road.

"The public are advised not to worry as it is all part of the exercise and to attend as normal, staff will be on the ground to advise and support as needed."

It is not the first time that an emergency training exercise has taken place at the 'Eliot. Last year, a mock chemical attack saw medics, police and firefighters work together to enact how they would respond in the event of that emergency.
