After months of consultation with residents of Watford and West Herts, the West Herts Hospital NHS Trust Board has unanimously approved the Watford Hospital redevelopment option.
Speaking on behalf of the option this morning, Chair of Watford Labour and North Watford County Cllr Asif Khan said:
“We have waited an incredibly long time for the future of our hospital to be confirmed and I am so pleased to hear it will remain in the heart of Watford. If there is one thing we have learnt this year it is that we cannot take our health or hospital for granted so we should not take the health of our hospital for granted either. This option, which has cross-party backing, allows works to be done in a safe way and ensures emergency medicine can continued to be delivered in a safe way.”
