A 62-bed ward block and new operating theatres are to be built at a hospital in Hertfordshire with £39m funding.

Final approval has been given for the project at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage which will complete a £150m scheme by the end of 2014.

A new £18.6m two-storey ward block at the front of the hospital will have 50% of its beds in single ensuite rooms.

The £20.6m operating theatres and endoscopy block will be built as an extension to an existing unit.

NHS Hertfordshire said the scheme would complete its preparations to build the New QEII hospital in Welwyn Garden City.
