The NHS Trust which oversees the Lister Hospital in Stevenage is asking visitors to not remove its hand sanitiser gels – which are available around the hospital – as a number of dispensers have been taken amid coronavirus fears.
The NHS trust which runs Stevenage’s Lister Hospital and Welwyn Garden City’s New QEII Hospital has warned that “there is a very real danger [it] will run out of money and [their] supply of people will dry up”.
New figures show that over a 12-month period (2018/19) about £500,000 has been saved by people in Hertfordshire who have bought medicines from a pharmacy or supermarket instead of getting a prescription from their GP.
A fundraising appeal has been launched to help a 22-year-old woman from Hatfield who is struggling to walk after a horrific crash which saw two cars come off the road during a Stevenage car meet and plough into watching pedestrians.
An investigation into an IT error at the East and North Herts NHS Trust which meant up to 14,600 patient discharge summaries may not have been sent to GPs has concluded, but only 2,000 patient records have been checked.
