Oliver visited Watford General Hospital to receive an update on their redevelopment plans, as part of the government’s biggest hospital building programme in a generation.
Watford General Hospital will be redeveloped as part of the government’s plan to build 40 new hospitals by 2030, backed by £3.7 billion of funding from the government. Oliver was joined on the visit by Dean Russell MP, the Member of Parliament for Watford.
Oliver said: ‘I am delighted that Watford General Hospital is being redeveloped and will receive much needed government funding. It was great to meet with West Herts Hospital Trust today and tour the site to receive an update on their proposals for the new hospital.
I know how important this hospital is to our community, it is used by many local residents, including me – my son was born there.
It is important as our towns and villages grow that we have the right infrastructure to match. The commitment to redevelop Watford General will support my constituents from Bushey, Radlett and beyond and provide much needed services in one place locally.
I have worked closely with WHHT on this since the outset, and will continue to follow this project closely, ensuring the best outcomes for my Hertsmere constituents.’
