Many thanks for all your efforts against centralising everything at Watford General. For environmental reasons I gave up my car a few years ago which means that getting to that hospital by public transport ain't easy. It requires multiple changes of bu/train and some walking. And trying to do that on a match day is just impossible.
I believe Watford is too crowded. I spent 5 days there bit it was too busy for the medical team to really understand what was wrong with me. I'm still not great 8 months later. Even the car park is a nightmare and so hilly. An A&E in the Hemel area will relieve the pressure from Watford. With all the new builds around Hemel we really do need this extra A&E
A new standalone hospital to serve the 3 towns would be so much more efficient than patching up a rambling out of date site on the side of a steep hill and next to a major football club. The existing land in each town could then be sold for housing, probably making enough to pay for the new hospital.
The people of Hemel Hempstead and surrounding areas have been treated extremely badly by whoever makes the decisions on hospital funding. To keep pouring money into Watford General, an out of date, overcrowded, building, with impossible access and parking, is a disgrace. Who are the people making decisions on our behalf, I haven’t voted for them?
