Sunderland Royal hosted the monarch as she officially opened the Chester Wing on December 7, 2000.

She met patients, staff and schoolchildren as she took in what was the newest part of the hospital.

She was also introduced with the leaders of City Hospitals Sunderland, which became part of South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Trust when it merged with South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust in 2019.

Our thanks go to the Trust for sharing these rare photos as it joins in with the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
