The Hotel Rembrandt in Weymouth<br />
<br />
A seaside hotel today became the first in Britain to open as a hospital to help the NHS cope with the coronavirus crisis.<br />
<br />
The Hotel Rembrandt in Weymouth, Dorset, is taking 31 'low risk' patients from local hospitals to free up desperately-needed beds.<br />
<br />
The guests are not coronavirus patients but have been treated for other ailments and were taking up valuable bed space while waiting to be discharged.<br />
<br />
The three star hotel has been kitted out to accommodate them and have been supplied with nurses from a care agency.<br />
<br />
Twelve members of hotel staff have been kept on to see to laundry and housekeeping and to cook three meals a day for the patients and care workers.
