Overview

QEII hospital

All remaining emergency and inpatient services at the QEII have now moved to the Lister hospital in nearby Stevenage, which has been 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 natal services, as well as a 24/7 Urgent Care Centre for treating adults and children of all ages with minor injuries and illnesses.

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.

The QEII's A&E was replaced, on 1 October 2014, with a new Urgent Care Centre that is open 24 hours a day and treats adults and children of all ages with minor injuries or minor illnesses.  No appointment is necessary.
