Two wards at the old Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham are to reopen to help deal with an influx of patients in the West Midlands.
University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust is blaming a rise in the number of GP referrals, self-presenting patients and emergency admissions for problems with overcrowding.
The new £545 million Queen Elizabeth Hospital has over 1000 beds, but two wards will be recommissioned at the former QE Hospital which was built in the 1930s and closed in 2010.
