We did it
On 27th November 2019 we successfully raised £9,896 with 265 supporters in 77 days

We need to go to law in support of a new hospital on a clear central site instead of renovating a crumbling and inaccessible existing one.

It is essential to establish a new hospital with all the increasing population and demands of Hemel, Watford and St Albans and associated towns and villages

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A new standalone hospital to serve the 3 towns would be so much more efficient than patching up a rambling out of date site on the side of a steep hill and next to a major football club.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 A&E Department in Watford Hospital is the very worst location to get to in an emergency. And if a Football game is on you'll be dead before you get anywhere near it. Accessibility should be a priority - ideally right next to the M1

Hemel Hempstead is the second largest town in the whole of Hertfordshire & we don't have our own A & E provision. This in turn creates overcrowding in Watford hospital to a highly dangerous level. Our A & E Dept should never have been lost.

Carole Mathews 24th October 2019

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 To keep pouring money into Watford General, an out of date, overcrowded, building, with impossible access and parking, is a disgrace.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?

Gary McMahon 24th October 2019

A last chance to undo the terrible sequence of decisions that has left most of West Herts without reasonable hospital services.

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £70 million for bright ideas and good causes.
