    The history:

    The Queen Elizabeth II hospital – or the QEII as it is known locally, is located in Welwyn Garden City and run by East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust.

    The first full hospital to be built by the NHS, the QEII had some 100 beds. All inpatient and emergency services were transferred by October 2014 to the Lister Hospital (Stevenage), which has had £150 million invested in major new facilities.

    Since October 2014, the QEII has continued to offer a range of general hospital services for people living and working in many parts of east and south Hertfordshire. These include GP services, outpatient clinics, diagnostic (radiology, pathology and endoscopy), a breast unit and antenatal and postnatal care, as well as a 24/7 urgent care centre for adults and children of all ages with minor injuries and illnesses. £30 million has been invested in new facilities. The old hospital site is now closed and the land will be used for housing and a care home.

    The Explore:

    Having recently seen quite a large number of pictures from the site, I decided that it was best to get it done soon rather than later so fast forward a few days and we are on our way. Upon arriving at the site, I quickly receive news that another group of explorers had been caught by police and arrested so it was clear that we had to be extra vigilant. After a brisk walk of the perimeter, we spotted where we needed to be and quickly made our way inside.

    First stop was the morgue and to our amazement, there were 5 other explorers in here! Trying to get a decent shot at this time was impossible so I left it until later on. To say the site was busy is an understatement!
    Was also nice to finally meet MikeyMutt, Rubex and Darbians just to name a few :)
    Not alot left to see as pretty much all of it has been stripped out but there are a few nice features remaining.
    Thanks to DirtyJigsaw for a little help too ;-)
