QE2 Hospital

Former hospital in Welwyn Garden City, managed by East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust. It was replaced in 2015 by the New QE2 Hospital. The old hospital was demolished.

In 2007, Vicki Adkins and Kim Wilde open the breast cancer unit at the QE2 Hospital. The unit was built between the Trust and the Hertfordshire Breast Unit Appeal and was named after its founder, Vicki Adkins. Kim was a patron of the charity and co-designed a garden for the facility. Vicki Adkins was the leading lady of the charity, who single-handedly badgered and coerced the community into donating more than £1million.

The unit was subsequently moved to the New QE2 Hospital, while the charity continues to raise funds for new equipment.
