Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been turned into hospital unit and COVID-19 test centre
Tottenham have been doing their bit in the battle against the coronavirus pandemic. The club had confirmed earlier this month that the Tottenham Hotspur stadium would be turned into a hospital unit to house the North Middlesex Hospital’s Women’s Outpatient Services as well as a COVID-19 test centre. The facility is also being used to treat pregnant women.
The media centre is serving as the main reception, while interview rooms have been turned into scanning and consultation rooms. The NFL away room has been repurposed into a temporary maternal day unit.
The away dressing room of our stadium has been turned into a midwives’ clinical room and staff admin office. Whereas, the basement car park is being used as a drive-through Covid-19 testing centre.
With this, our stadium became the first Premier League ground to be used for coronavirus testing.

Not only this, the fresh produce grown in our club’s training ground is being distributed among the needy in the community, with the stadium’s pitch pocket itself being used as the food distribution hub.
Moreover, our manager Jose Mourinho has volunteered to drive the produce from the centre to the distribution hub, from where it will be delivered to the most vulnerable in the community.
