The New QEII Hospital is a modern, welcoming and sustainable place for local people to access the hospital services that they use most often.
Its design takes inspiration from the original Garden City concept by its integration of gardens and building, use of materials and its pitched roof line. There are also many features to support sustainability and adaptations to future climate change.
