House of Commons
NEW ACUTE HOSPITAL IN WEST HERTFORDSHIRE
EDM #1230
Tabled 02 May 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House notes that the acute hospital in Watford was the first hospital to be built under the reign of Queen Victoria; further notes that the hospital has since been developed in an ad hoc manner and that the deterioration of its facilities has made it harder for the excellent doctors, nurses and auxiliary staff to carry out their work; notes that there is a lack of affordable parking facilities for staff, patients and visitors as a result of its location next to a Premier League football club; recognises the further pressure put on the hospital's facilities following the closure of acute services at St Albans and Hemel Hempstead which were opposed by the majority of local residents; and calls on the Government to halt the taxpayer-funded redevelopment of the Watford site and to make funding available for a new acute hospital on a greenfield site that can serve all of the growing population of West Hertfordshire.
