West Hertfordshire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

West Hertfordshire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust provides acute healthcare services to a core catchment population of approximately half a million people living in West Hertfordshire and the surrounding area. The trust also provides a range of more specialist services to a wider population, serving residents of North London, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and East Hertfordshire. As an employer of almost 5,000 people the trust is one of the biggest employers in the area and sees nearly a million patients each year.

Services are run over three sites: Watford General Hospital, St Albans City Hospital and Hemel Hempstead Hospital. Watford General Hospital is at the heart of the Trust's acute emergency services - the core location for inpatient emergency care, and for all patients who need the specialist emergency facilities (such as intensive care) of a major district general hospital. St Albans City Hospital St Albans City Hospital is the Trust's elective care centre. It provides a wide range of elective care (both inpatient low risk surgery and day-case) and a wide range of outpatient and diagnostic services, with in excess of 100,000 outpatient appointments. Hemel Hempstead Hospital offers other local healthcare facilities such as diagnostic services, including MRI and cold pathology, as well as an outpatient service that sees in excess of 100,000 patients per year. In addition, it provides 12 stroke rehabilitation beds.

The Internal Management Structure

The unified management structure put in place from 1st April 1999, is centred around six Clinical Management Units (CMUs). The clinical management model in place is run under the leadership of a Clinical Director, although a number of CMU's have more than one Clinical Director in post currently.
