QA is set to be given almost £60m by the government to replace its outdated casualty department.

The cash windfall, which was announced this morning, will see a new A&E built on the Cosham site. The current A&E has struggled to cope in recent years and has regularly seen long queues as patients wait for treatment and to be unloaded from ambulances.

The hospital has been drawing up plans for a new A&E for several years, and enlisted the support of local MPs to lobby for the cash. It was recognised by the Care Quality Commission earlier this year that the current building, which dates from 1979, had outlived its use.
