Expansion planned at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich

Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich is set to see a new unit for CT scans under new proposals.

The plan also includes “erection of a new entrance point for patients, with stairs and lift from the external ground level and re-providing access to the existing basement.”

195 square metres of space is to be built as an extension to existing facilities.

The hospital caters for some of the largest housing and population growth in the country. In December 2018 two new wards and 58 beds opened on site.

Healthy eating

A new permanent structure is also being constructed outside the entrance for foot and veg stall to provide healthy food, which was covered on this site last November.

Anyone who’s been for any length of time knows the site isn’t great for food and shops.

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust have a news story about it here.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    One thought on “Expansion planned at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Woolwich

    • Any improvements to Hospital and health seervices in the area has to be welcomed and his good news for patients.

      I still think the area needs another general hospital and A&E unit to serve the Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust which treats patients from Greenwich Lewisham and Bexley.Boroughs.
