PETER PLEASED: Mayor welcomes government’s Watford General Hospital announcement

 Published on: 29th January 2020   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor has welcomed an announcement from Health Secretary Matt Hancock that the £400 million funding for new facilities at Watford General Hospital is a grant to West Herts NHS Trust, not a loan. 

Liberal Democrat Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said: “I welcome the government confirming that this much needed investment in our hospital is a grant. A loan would have placed yet another burden on our already stretched NHS Trust. I’m delighted that Watford General Hospital is getting the facilities that the patients and staff deserve. 

“This investment would never have been possible without the tough decisions made by the Liberal Democrat council to provide the Trust the land they needed for these improvements. The time for talking is now over; the government must now deliver on its promise to our hospital and to our town. We need this investment now and I am urging the government to move as quickly as possible to support our hospital.”
