West Herts Hospitals NHS Trust among the best performing trusts for organ donation

Thirty-three patients have received life-saving or life changing transplants thanks to the hard work of trust staff who led sensitive conversations with relatives about organ donations. We are one of the best performing trusts for the quality of care in organ donation when compared to similar trusts.

Patient safety must always be the priority

Health and Social Care Secretary Jeremy Hunt inspired staff to prize patient safety above all else and to speak up if they have concerns and to admit to errors.

"There is a world of difference between gross negligence and human error," he said, to a packed-out room at Watford General Hospital during his visit on Friday 15 June.

"We have to be brutally brave when it comes to safety."

West Herts NHS Trust Annual General Meeting

Thursday, 5 July, 2018 - 15:00 to 18:30

This year, as part of our celebrations to mark the 70th birthday of the NHS, our AGM will begin with a staff awards ceremony.

We are holding the event at Watford Football Club as they have kindly gifted us use of their media suite in honour of NHS70.

Join us to hear about our exit from special measures; the many awards we’ve won; and plans for our buildings – which are ageing badly across all of our sites. We will be speaking about past, current and future challenges as well as answering your questions.
