PEOPLE can now take a virtual tour of the UK’s first mobile field hospital which was set up by UK fire services.

The site, spanning four football pitches, will help save lives in disaster zones and is fully equipped with 40 beds, departments for surgery and A&E and the facilities to airlift casualties.

Robin Bates, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service’s urban search and rescue crew manager, was project section leader in charge of accommodation and logistics.

He said: ‘The work that has gone into this is incredible. To be able to go to a disaster zone and immediately put up such a vital lifeline will make a huge difference to those in need.

‘This facility will save lives without a doubt and improve life for people who have lost everything in countries where the infrastructure has been completely wiped out.’

A tour of the hospital, which can be used for up to 90 days, is available online and gives a look into what it offers.
