Watford General Hospital has received an £11million windfall for an emergency care transformation.

West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust secured the funding from The Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock, who announced the windfall as part of the government’s £963million investment in sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs).

Acting chief executive, Helen Brown, said: “We’re delighted to hear that we have been successful in our bid for capital funding. This will make an enormous contribution to transforming and improving patient services and help to increase capacity in our emergency department. We will also be able to provide greater privacy and dignity for our patients by increasing the size of our treatment cubicles.” 

The money will be used to significantly improve the layout of the emergency department creating additional treatment and assessment space for both adults and children. 

In addition to a better patient experience, staff will benefit from a vastly improved working environment.
