Plans approved for £25m Welwyn hospital

Outline plans to build the new £25 million Queen Elizabeth Hospital have been given the go ahead.

Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council approved the plans to develop the hospital along with 202 homes last week.

The new hospital will provide a local A&E facility and children’s centre.

It is scheduled to open in 2014.

The new facility is significantly smaller than the old QEII it replaces as many of its services will be centralised at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, currently under construction by Sir Robert McAlpine and Vinci.
