THE NHS trust that serves Welwyn Hatfield is in fair health, according to a new report published today (Thursday).
The "Annual Health Check" - a performance report of NHS trusts across the country by the Care Quality Commission - has given NHS East and North Hertfordshire a "fair" rating for the second year in a row.
The report found that the trust had improved its waiting times for patients, and had achieved a number of public health targets, including the number of women screened for breast cancer and effective treatment for drug users.
But the Commission found the trust needs to improve in areas such as providing access to primary care and discharging patients after their treatment has finished.
