We transformed the atrium area of new hospital with a stage set to host the official naming ceremony. Along with the main stage set we built a tiered seating area for 200 local dignitaries to watch the ceremony that was televised on local TV.

The Queen and Duke were greeted by cheering, flag-waving crowds and a fanfare from the Royal Air Force band outside the main entrance to the hospital before moving inside to meet patients, staff and volunteers.

Dame Julie Moore, Chief Executive of University Hospital Birmingham NHS Foundation welcomed the Queen and Duke, which was followed by a short speech and video showing the construction of the new hospital and the work it currently provides.

After the video and speech the Queen unveiled a piece of commemorative glasswork by a local artist.
