We want Watford to be a centre of health excellence: with first-class facilities at Watford General and a pro-active approach to making Watford a well-being town.
Funding for the West Herts Hospital Trust - which includes a major rebuild at Watford General Hospital - has been announced by the Conservative Government. £400million has been offered to date.
We will get behind the efforts of our local MP, Dean Russell, to ensure that every penny of investment in Watford by West Herts Hospital Trust is spent well and that work begins without delay on new facilities that benefit the whole area.
We support Dean's campaign for improved local mental health. No resident of Watford should ever feel alone and without support. We back his mental health first-aiders programme: working with some excellent local partners, the idea is that 1,000 mental health first-aiders will be trained to sport the first signs of a problem and to be able to signpost support.
