Plans by locality
We are working with GPs, local communities and stakeholders in each of our four localities to deliver the priority changes in each area outlined in our strategic outline case.
This includes developing health and wellbeing hubs to provide more care closer to home.

The Marlowes Health and Wellbeing Centre
The Marlowes Health and Wellbeing Centre opened to patients in March 2018, bringing community mental and physical health services from Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT), and Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT) under one roof.
There are dedicated floors for adults and children creating the right environment for different patients and making services easier to find.
Borehamwood Health and wellbeing hub
Local clinicians and patients are working on plans for a health and wellbeing hub in communities in Elstree Way, Borehamwood. Careful planning and analysis is taking place to make sure the hub meets the needs of the local population. This will help build a strategic outline case for the Borehamwood hub, which is due to be published later this year.
Work to develop the Borehamwood health and wellbeing hub is being led by Herts Valleys Clinical Commissioning Group and Hertsmere Borough Council
St Albans and Harpenden
St Albans city centre
Community health provision in St Albans forms part of plans to regenerate the city centre. The Principal Health Centre building owned by Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT) has been acquired by the district council for redevelopment.
Services provided by HCT at the Principal Health Centre will be transferred to the Council-owned Civic Centre later this year, along with the Leg Ulcer Clinic and Podiatry Service, currently located at St Albans City Hospital.
Harpenden Health and wellbeing hub
Local clinicians and patients have been working on plans for a health and wellbeing hub in Harpenden.
Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust is working with the community including St Albans City and District and town councillors, The Harpenden Society, Red House Forum and the St Albans and Harpenden Patient Group to discuss the redevelopment of the Harpenden Memorial site and ideas for the hub.
