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 £170 million being invested in new facilities.  Locally a new QEII hospital will be built, by 2014, which 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.
