The legacy of Lister Hospital

Built in 1972, Lister Hospital is an incredible benchmark of the town's history. Named after Lord Joseph Lister who was a pioneer in antiseptic surgery, his legacy lives on through the services offered by the trust.

The hospital sits in the borough of Stevenage -�Britain's first new town, that was created in 1946 to house Londoners who had been displaced by damage from the blitz during WWII. Its 1950's concrete town square is not to everyone's taste, but was awarded heritage status in 2017 by Historic England.

Dizzy heights in middle England
