  • Safer staffing levels

Overview

QEII hospital

The QEII offers a wide range of services, including a regional specialty in ophthalmology. 

Over the next few years emergency and inpatient services will be moving to the Lister hospital in nearby Stevenage, which is being transformed through around £150 million being invested in new facilities. 

Locally a new £30 million QEII hospital is being built by the local Clinical Commissioning Group on the same site as the existing hospital.  Due to open in April 2015, the New QEII will have a full range of outpatient, diagnostic and ante/post natal services.

The QEII is located in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire. Please click here to find out how to get to the QEII and here to find out more about the facilities available to patients and their visitors.
