Lister Hospital

Our IT systems are now restored and whilst testing continues for the time being, our services have returned to normal. Below are some key messages for patients and the public for over the weekend of 20/21 May 2017:

  • All hospital appointments will go ahead as planned
  • The Trust’s phlebotomy clinics at the Lister, New QEII and Hertford County hospitals will reopen for walk-in, non-urgent blood tests from Monday, 22 May – with hours at the Lister clinic extended daily until 8.00pm from Monday, 22 May to Friday, 26 May.
  • The diabetic eye screening and sleep unit services are now operating normally again.
  • The out-of-hours GP service at the Lister  is for booked GP appointments only.

The Trust is very grateful for the support and understanding that it has received from patients and the wider public during this time as our staff have worked very hard to return our IT systems to normal, whilst at the same time ensuring patients continued to receive high quality care.

The Lister is a 730-bed district general hospital in Stevenage.

It offers general and specialist hospital services for people across much of Hertfordshire and south Bedfordshire and provides a full range of medical and surgical specialties.

General wards are supported by critical care (intensive care and high dependency) and coronary care units, as well as pathology, radiology and other diagnostic services. There are specialist sub-regional services in urology and renal dialysis.

By October 2014, the Lister was transformed – following the investment of £150 million in new facilities – in to the Trust’s specialist hospital for emergency and inpatient care for east and north Hertfordshire and south Bedfordshire.

Sub-regional services

We also provide sub-regional services based at the Lister in:

  • Urology – including robotic surgery
  • Renal dialysis – we are trialing home dialysis machines currently, which will give our patients more choice and flexibility and in 2013, we opened two new renal dialysis satellite units in Harlow and Bedford
