Fundraiser for New West Herts Hospital

Living Magazines West Herts 21 Century Hospital Solution - Hospital External View to Entrance

A fundraising dinner will take place in Berkhamsted in a bid to raise funds for the campaign for the West Herts 21 Century Hospital Solution.

The campaign for a new centralised hospital for West Herts, is spearheaded by Gordon Yearwood, who was responsible for the planning, design and construction of the Hospice of St Francis.

He told Living magazines that the plan is ‘still very much viable as the £1.27 billion tower block scheme currently proposed at Watford, has not had its business case approved. The West Herts 21 Century Hospital Solution will provide far more accessibility and will cost only half as much. It will also be a far better environment for patients and front line staff.

‘The next steps are to raise money to promote more public knowledge and support and to produce further analysis reports to convince the Government.’

The proposed hospital will, he added, be more accessible, centrally located, offer faster diagnosis and treatment and offer local town centre satellite support services.

The event will be held at Berkhamsted Town Hall on Wednesday 27 September. Starting at 7pm, the fundraising three-course dinner and presentation costs £35 per person.

He added: ‘If you support our cause but are unable to attend the fundraising dinner, a £5 donation to ‘West Herts 21 Century Hospital Solution’ through the above, would help.’
