Delivering quality healthcare for Hertfordshire
The consultation process was undertaken jointly by West Hertfordshire Primary Care Trust (PCT), East and North Hertfordshire PCT, East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust and West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust. The consultation ran from 12 June 2007 to 1 October 2007.
Our objectives in conducting this public consultation were as follows:
1. To ensure the widest possible knowledge of and understanding of the local health community’s proposals.
2. To engage the people of Hertfordshire in an informed debate about the future of their local NHS services.
3. To seek the views of the local community on the proposals set out in this consultation document and where possible to improve these proposals.
4. To see if there are any safe, sustainable and cost-effective alternatives to those outlined in this document.
Through the documents on this website we have tried to paint the broad picture of how we see health services developing in Hertfordshire in the early 21st century and to detail our most significant and most immediate proposals for change. Much of the detailed thinking is contained in the “business case” for change which is available here.
