The Queen Alexandra Hospital is located just on the hill slopes of Portsdown hill overlooking Portsmouth. It is conveniently situated for both the M27, A3M.
The Queen Alexandra Hospital site has gone through a major redevelopment to create a modern and 'fit for purpose' hospital, which has been completed in 2009. This work has been done in partnership with 'The Hospital Company', a consortium of Carillion plc and the Royal Bank of Scotland.The majority of the Trust's acute services are now provided at Queen Alexandra followng the opening phase of the new state-of-the-art facilities.
The 'Emergency Department' at Queen Alexandra Hospital is one of the busiest in the UK treating in excess of 100, 000 patients each year.
The 'Medical Assessment Unit' (MAU) and 'Surgical Assessment Unit' (SAU) provide rapid diagnostic assessment for patients admitted as emergencies. These can then be directed to the clinical areas most appropriate for their condition.
The Trust is also home to the Wessex Renal and Transplant Unit and it holds prestigious Cancer Beacon Status for the Head and Neck Cancer Services.
Hosting the largest Ministry of Defence Hospital Unit (MDHU) in the country, the Trust enjoys strong military connections and is proud of this association. This means that as a Trust, we have wider responsibilities than those of standard NHS organisations. Military staff now account for 5% of the total workforce and the Trust has responsibility to ensure the staff have exposure to the appropriate clinical experience required during their times of deployment throughout the world.
