Lister Hospital

Lister Hospital

The Lister Hospital is based on the outskirts of Stevenage in Hertfordshire. It is operated by the East and North Herts NHS trust along with the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Welwyn Garden City. The Lister Hospital currently has 650 beds and an A&E department. It was listed by the Conservative Party (UK) in 2007 as one of 29 hospitals most at risk of being closed in England.

Both the Lister and Queen Elizabeth II hospitals were scheduled to be closed and replaced by a "super" hospital in Hatfield, and the Lister was scheduled to remain as a specialist surgical centre. However, the government rejected the funding for this proposal, and after a long consultation period, opted to abandon the plans for a superhospital, remove A&E from the Queen Elizabeth II and concentrate A&E and most services at the Lister.
