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 district general hospital, with some 100 beds.  All inpatient and emergency services were transferred by October 2014 to an expanded Lister hospital in Stevenage, which has had £150 million invested in major new facilities.

Since October 2014, the QEII has continued to offer a range of general hospital services for people living and working in many parts of east and south Hertfordshire.  These include a full range of outpatient, diagnostic (radiology, pathology and endoscopy) and ante-natal services, as well as a 24/7 urgent care centre for adults and children of all ages with minor injuries and illnesses.

In May 2013 construction work started for the New QEII hospital, which is on track to open in Spring 2015.   To find out more about the New QEII hospital and the services it will provide, please click here.   Please note that the new service model will operate out of the existing hospital from October 2014, which is when all remaining inpatient and emergency services will have transferred to the Lister, before moving across to occupy the New QEII hospital when it opens in Spring 2014.
