Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is to relocate to Hemel Hempstead town centre at the end of March. The CCG has finalised negotiations with Dacorum Borough Council to take up space in their offices at The Forum.
With its lease at its current premises in Hemel One, Boundary Way coming to an end this spring, the move presents an opportunity for the CCG to strengthen links with the borough council and the local community.
Herts Valleys CCG Chief Executive, Kathryn Magson says: “Given our responsibility for planning and buying health services on behalf of the local population it will be great to have more visibility within what is a very public space and to be closer to our partner organisations and the people we serve. This is very much in keeping with our future direction around our integration agenda with all stakeholders so that we coordinate our efforts to improve people’s health and wellbeing.
“As well as fostering closer relationships with the local community, the move means that our office rental payments will stay in the public sector. We’re pleased to be entering into a mutually beneficial arrangement with the council and very much look forward to moving into the Forum at the end of March.”
Cllr Andrew Williams, Leader of Dacorum Borough Council said: “We are very pleased to welcome the Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group on board as a new tenant in the Forum. The CCG move will be beneficial in enabling the Council and the other residents of the Forum to work more closely with the CCG as well as providing the Council with an opportunity to make financial savings and receive valuable rental income”.
