Modernising the current QEH
Maximising safety of our current site
Our current buildings have reached the end of their life. Steel and timber support props maximise the safety of the hospital, but they don’t extend its life beyond 2030.
The voices of our local community and staff
Over recent months, people have been adding their support by sharing their thoughts, feelings, and views on why we need a new hospital.
Why we need a new QEH
The current QEH is a RAAC (Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) hospital, which was built in 1980 and designed to last 30 years.
The support from our stakeholders
We are delighted to have received a broad range of support from our local communities, our patients, our staff, and our supporters.
