Here’s some good news for the weekend. Two new wards featuring 58 beds have opened at the QE Hospital in Woolwich.
A major moment in the history of QEH – completion of our new clinical facility, wards 22 & 23. 58 beds to give much needed capacity, & help address the increased demand since the closure of A&E at Queen Mary’s in 2010. Magnificent team effort to deliver this on time. pic.twitter.com/oAh7Ps3bIX

I covered plans for 100 extra beds last December. This opening of 58 will see more to follow.
A new pharmacy also opened last week. Anyone who has had a one hour (or longer) wait will be very grateful for that.
