Why we need to make changes
The NHS is facing increasing demands on its services as people live for longer, often coping a range of long term health issues. The Service needs to care for more people, more efficiently.
Sopwell and Langton Wards
Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust are planning to close two rehabilitation wards – Sopwell and Langton wards - at St Albans City Hospital. This will result in a reduction of 39 community hospital beds. On average only three in ten patients who are treated on these wards come from the St Albans areas, with the majority living in Watford and Hemel Hempstead.
