Hospital rules out ‘Carebnb’ scheme

A HOSPITAL linked to a trial scheme to move NHS patients into Airbnb-style private rooms insisted yesterday that it has no intention to support the plan ‘at this time’.

A company, CareRooms, is recruiting ‘hosts’ in Essex who could earn up to £50 a night for a trial scheme.

But Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: ‘While we welcome new ideas, there is no intention and there never has been for the hospital to support this pilot at this time.’
