Tottenham confirm NHS services to continue at stadium after Premier League return
With Premier League action set to resume from June 17, Tottenham have confirmed that NHS services at the club’s stadium will continue to be accommodated.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium has been used by the NHS since April in the battle against the coronavirus pandemic. North Middlesex University Hospital has used our stadium for drive-through coronavirus testing and the relocation of its Women’s Outpatient Services.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was the first among the Premier League clubs to make the stadium available for testing.
The basement car park is being used as a testing facility for hospital staff and key workers from other health and social care organisations. In addition, several areas within the stadium have been transformed to accommodate the hospital’s Women’s Outpatient Services.
Now the club has confirmed that areas such as the away changing room, emergency medical room, official’s room, doping control and medical welfare rooms, that were being used for these purposes, will all be cleaned, sterilised and disinfected as they return to their original uses. NHS services will now be relocated to other appropriate areas.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said:
“We are delighted that, with the imminent return of Premier League football, we have been able to ensure that the vital NHS work can continue to be housed at our stadium during the fight against COVID-19.”
Tottenham also confirmed that the basement car park will continue to operate as the drive-through testing centre whereas the South Stand ‘pitch pocket’ will still serve as the food distribution hub operated by Haringey Council.

In order to maintain health and safety, no non-football operations will be taking place at the stadium on home matchdays.
Goes without saying it is a great gesture by the club, to continue contributing in these times. COYS.
