As of this week, the entrance to the emergency department at Queen’s Hospital has moved.

The hospital in Rom Valley Way, Romford, has moved the entrance to its Accident and Emergency department closer to the hospital’s main entrance, in front of the drop-off point instead of behind it.

The new entrance, which officially opened on Wednesday, is now next to the hospital’s maternity entrance.

The move of less than a minute’s walk was required as the hospital opened its new Enhanced Urgent Care Centre (EUCC) at 9am on Wednesday.

The emergency drop off point will remain in the same place.

A spokesman for the Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals Trust, which runs the hospital, said: “The opening of our EUCC is part of our on-going plans to improve urgent and emergency care at our hospitals.”
