Patients can now attend Watford General Hospital as usual after yesterday’s critical incident came to an end last night.
This means that patients can attend Watford General as usual and that ambulances can bring patients to Watford General instead of to neighbouring hospitals.
Bosses say the issues experienced have been resolved and a safe level of oxygen was maintained throughout the duration of the incident.
They’ve thanked neighbouring hospitals, the ambulance service and the police for their support.
Deputy chief executive Helen Brown said: “We know that our NHS colleagues and the police are exceptionally busy at the moment, but this didn’t stop them stepping in to help. They were quick to respond and together – as one team – we kept our site and our patients safe.”
