Sessions Date and time We’d like to hear your views on:
Same day emergency care 6 April, 6-7.30pm Same day emergency care is about treating you with all the care you need without admitting you to hospital overnight unnecessarily. Find out more about emergency care and why patients are not always taken to their nearest hospital. Watch a recording of the session here.
Virtual healthcare 8 April, 12-1.30pm Virtual healthcare can be the very best of hospital care - but delivered from the comfort of your own home, allowing you to be safely treated and monitored in a home setting. Find out more about how patients are being treated in innovative ways using technology. And do dial in to give your experiences and views of virtual care. Watch a recording of the session here.
Design principles 25 April, 6-7.30pm Learn about the principles by which we are designing our proposed new hospital building at Watford General. Find out how we will balance the quality of care with healing environments, whilst also factoring in sustainability and many other considerations that make a hospital fit for the 21st century. View the recording here.

Upcoming engagement sessions

These sessions are open to everyone in the community who would like to learn more. However, we are particularly keen for recent patients and carers to participate and provide their views on the topics. These will be 1hr 20 minute sessions where we will give an overview of the topic and examples and you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions. Then we will ask for breakout groups to discuss views and ideas in more detail.

We would really like to hear from you, please email us at westherts.redevelopment@nhs.net to register your interest in a particular session or if you have any questions.
