A new state-of-the-art children's hospital, which is one of only seven dedicated to paediatric care in the UK, has been opened in East Sussex.
The £36m Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital, in Brighton, has been funded by a private finance initiative.
It has been designed in the shape of an ark and replaces the old hospital of the same name, but has double the beds.
It has been built beside the existing Royal Sussex County Hospital, and will begin treating patients from Monday.
The nine-storey building includes beds for up to 100 patients, 15 outpatient consulting rooms, three operating theatres and a cancer care day centre.
