What we’re campaigning for

  • Safe and good quality local healthcare
  • A new emergency and specialist hospital accessible for all across West Herts
  • An end to damaging cutbacks and outsourcing in the NHS

Better healthcare in Dacorum

Dacorum Health Action Group (DHAG) campaigns for better healthcare in Hemel Hempstead and across the Dacorum area.

Services at Hemel Hempstead Hospital have been steadily run down.  All too often local people are now forced to depend on other hospitals like Watford General which can be very difficult to get to.

Primary care and other services in Dacorum are frequently fragmented and difficult to access.

Residents feel that their views simply aren’t being heard by local health bosses.

We are an independent patient and public voice.

A new hospital for West Herts

The New Hospital Campaign (NHC) is fighting for a new emergency and specialist care hospital in a central location that can properly serve people across West Hertfordshire.

West Herts Teaching Hospitals Trust has been promised funding for a new emergency and specialist hospital as one of the projects in the Government’s new hospital programme.

But it must be in the right place!

NHC is calling on the Trust to ditch its obsession with redeveloping the unsuitable Watford General Hospital site.
