A hospital in Herfordshire will receive £39m as part of a transformation plan which will see it become the main emergency hospital in the town.

The money will be used to build a new ward and theatre blocks at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage.

Work should be finished by the end of 2014.

The money is part of a £150m transformation plan.
