I was glad to be able to attend part of the Conversation Cafe about Royston Hospital. I have had good meetings with Dr Peter Gough and local councillors and also attended the last Friends of Royston Hospital meeting with Dr John Hedges. I am glad that they were all able to question the NHS Hertfordshire PCT at the Golf Club meeting. I am keen that we should obtain the best deal for Royston and retain all the services we have at the moment and a good platform for the future.
From the Conversation Cafe, there does seem to be a difference of views about whether the long-term future is to build clinic space at the new Care Home facility proposed on the existing hospital site or develop the Health Centre and see what land adjacent might be available for future expansion or try to go for something new in the longer term.
