QEII Hospital

The Queen Elizabeth II hospital – or the QEII as it is known locally, is located in Welwyn Garden City.

The first full hospital to be built by the NHS, the QEII is a 250-bed district general hospital. It offers a range of general hospital services for people living and working in many parts of east and south Hertfordshire.

Our general surgical and medical wards, which currently support mainly non-emergency patients, are supported by critical care (intensive care & high dependency) and coronary care units at the Lister hospital in Stevenage (there is a high dependency unit service at the QEII). The hospital also has a range of pathology and diagnostic services.

Parking and road layout at QEII changes from 4 June 2013

From 4 June 2013, changes were made to the road layout at the QEII and its car parks. From this date, the main entrance off Howlands will become one-way, with all traffic entering the site carrying on to exit principally via Ascots Lane.

The new main public car park is located in the area occupied formerly by the buildings comprising the old day hospital and Bayford/Stanborough wards.

All of the changes are included in maps which are on our website.

In May 2013 construction work started for the New QEII facility and this is expected to open in Spring 2015.
