Strategic Local Plan

West Hertfordshire NHS Review

Public Meeting: 29th January 2015, 7.30pm for 8.00pm, Park Hall

This public meeting is hosted by Harpenden Town Council and the Harpenden Society to hear from David Radbourne, the Programme Director for the West Hertfordshire Strategic Review about how the Local NHS organisations and Hertfordshire County Council are working together on a major review of the way health and social care services are provided in west Hertfordshire.

There will be an opportunity to understand how the Harpenden Memorial Hospital site will fit into the review and how the community can influence and shape future health and social care service in Harpenden and surrounding villages.

Because of the limited capacity of Park Hall this will be an all ticket event.

Tickets can be obtained online by clicking here or can be obtained from the Town Council Information Point.
