Premier League club offers stadium to NHS

Watford FC's Vicarage Road stadium is located next to the town's hospital.

Visual guide to the outbreak Mr Duxbury said:"We need to forget football right now and concentrate on doing all we can to support the NHS and, in particular, Watford General Hospital. "Our proximity as a football club next door to a hospital puts us in a great position to offer help and we're keen to do whatever we possibly can to support NHS staff and their families. "The UK government's message has been about doing 'whatever it takes'. Likewise, we'll do 'whatever it takes' here at Vicarage Road to offer our fullest support to the NHS and its people at a time when it's clearly needed most."

"We also need more space so that we can stick to important guidance about social distancing for our staff induction sessions and for key meetings when we need our senior leadership teams around the table," she said. "The club's support is helping us to run our organisation safely and we are very grateful for their support at this challenging time." Share this story Read more: BBC News (UK)
