An event to update residents on work to develop a refreshed plan for hospital sites in west Hertfordshire will take place on 29 January at the Stanborough Centre in St Albans Road, Watford, WD25 9JL from 7pm to 9pm. 

The event, organised by West Hertfordshire Hospitals Trust and Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), will share details of how the options for hospital development are shaping up and will explain the process for evaluating and shortlisting options.

Top executives from the Trust and the CCG will be joined by senior clinicians from both organisations. This follows feedback from previous meetings that patients wanted to hear from doctors and consultants about the developing plans. Attendees will get a chance to question speakers.

Further patient and public engagement is planned to take place during February prior to the evaluation of options.

To allow us to cater for everyone who wants to attend, please email communications.hvccg@nhs.net to book onto this event.  Please state when booking if you have any particular accessibility needs

As part of the Herts Valley's CCG we are raising awareness of the MY CARE RECORD programme with our patients  see   http://www.mycarerecord.org.uk/   for full information

What is My Care Record?

The people caring for you need access to your health and care record in order to make the best decisions about your diagnosis and treatment. This could include GPs, hospital-based clinicians, nurses, health visitors and social workers.

For this to happen more quickly and to improve the care you receive, a process has been put in place using existing computer systems.

This allows your information to be accessed by health and care clinicians and professionals within local health and care organisations that are providing you with care.

This does not share your record, but provides health and care clinicians and professionals access to view information relevant to your care and treatment.
