The Queen has met staff and patients on a visit to a hospital that has undergone a £132m revamp.
Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Queen toured the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading on Friday.
The hospital completed an eight-year building project to bring services from Reading's Battle Hospital onto a single site in December 2005.
The multi-million pound project was described as England's biggest Treasury-funded NHS building scheme.
As well as demonstrations of a robotic arm and angioplasty techniques, which use balloons to open blocked blood vessels, the royal visit took in a children's ward and radiology.
