Newham University Hospital has celebrated 35 years of helping sick and injured people.
The hospital, in Glen Road, Plaistow, was officially opened by the Queen on December 14, 1983 - marking the occasion by signing a book.
Since then, the hospital - formerly known as Newham General - has expanded to accommodate additional maternity beds, a special care baby unit, a rehabilitation department and an academic centre.
In April 2012, it joined with four other east London hospitals to become Barts Health NHS Trust.
Managing director Tony Halton said: “This is a time for us to celebrate the past 35 years and all that has been achieved. It’s also a chance to look forward to our 40th birthday.
