New QE Hospital

It's been 70 years since a new hospital was built in Birmingham and now the wait is over as patients, nurses and doctors started moving into the new Queen Elizabeth Hospital overnight.

The sickest of patients from emergency and trauma wards were the first to move at 2am - with the rest being transferred over the next couple of days.

Injured troops will also be moving over from Selly Oak.

Morag Jackson who managed the hospital project told Heart this building "will make a difference."

And Michelle Morris who's the Deputy Chief Nurse told us she's really excited to care for patients in the new state-of-the-art hospital:

"We're proud as clinical staff to be able to nurse and care for patients in this environment"

"Birmingham will be on the map now and can compete with London and other European hospitals for the care it gives"
