Grant Shapps has kindly updated his website http://www.shapps.com/2014/01/services-at-the-new-qeii/ with a summary of the A&E facilities which the new QE2 unit will be able to assist with and those which require a longer trip to the Lister in Stevenage:

QE2:
Sprains and strains - Broken bones - Infected wounds - Minor burns and scalds - Minor head injuries - Bites and stings - Minor eye injuries - Stitching of cuts - Removing foreign bodies from ears, noses, etc - Removal of splinters Dressing of minor wounds, cuts and grazes - Application of Plaster of Paris - X-rays.

Lister:
Chest pain - Breathing difficulties - Major injuries - Stomach pain - Allergic reactions Overdoses - Alcohol-related problems - Mental health conditions - Hip injuries - Conditions that are likely to need hospital admission.

In summary, if your illness is likely to be fatal - you need to travel further. Mmmm!
