Europe's largest hospital to open


London will be home to the largest hospital in Europe when the Royal London opens in six months' time.

The Royal London will have a new state-of-the-art Accident and Emergency unit and also be a new home for the London Air Ambulance.

The new centre was created as part of a £1bn private finance initiative (PFI). Critics of the scheme say that the NHS trust will struggle to keep up with its £6.5m monthly repayments.
