Oliver welcomes the government’s plans to redevelop Watford General Hospital as part of the biggest hospital building programme in a generation
Watford General Hospital will be redeveloped as part of the government’s plan to build 40 hospitals by 2030, backed by £3.7 billion of funding from the government.
Oliver said: ‘I am delighted that Watford General Hospital is being redeveloped and will receive much needed Government funding.
Watford will be one of the first six new hospitals delivered with a rebuild including women and children’s services. This is fantastic news.
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.’
The Health Infrastructure Plan is the biggest hospital building programme in a generation. On top of which, eight further new schemes will be invited to bid to join the Plan, totalling 48 new hospitals by the end of this decade.
