Appeal to King's Lynn community to help name Queen Elizabeth Hospital unit

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital is appealing to the local community to help it name a new outpatient’s unit.

The new unit will open in January next year and is possible thanks to £20.6m national emergency capital received which will allow QEH to improve services and enhance the environment and experience for patients, their families and staff.

Specialties that will be housed in the new outpatient unit include urology, pain service, and rheumatology, gynaecology outpatients, antenatal care, obstetric ultrasound, and a day assessment unit for pregnant women.
