The Queen has officially named the new £545 million Queen Elizabeth NHS hospital in Birmingham as she concludes the Midlands leg of her national Jubilee tour.
The Queen, accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, visited the hospital after arriving in Victoria Square this morning to greet people in Birmingham.
Her Majesty met staff, patients and volunteers at the hospital which is the home of the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine that treats service personnel who are severely wounded overseas.

The trust has a long history with the Queen Elizabeth name, with the Queen Mother naming the old hospital in 1939.
It's estimated around 300 patients and staff came out of the hospital to see the Queen with more members of the public lining the streets.
From the hospital the Queen will travel to RAF Cosford in Shropshire to attend a pageant there later.
Preparations for the Queen's arrival at RAF Cosford are well underway.
