The NHS has been battling to stay afloat during the coronavirus crisis, moving any available resource to help fight the virus.
The district hospital in Salisbury has been doing just that.
We first visited the hospital as it quickly repurposed to cope with the virus. We return now to speak to staff and patients about how their ordeal is continuing.
It has treated seriously ill patients with Covid-19 in ICU, some of whom have recovered, but sadly others have not.
