The East and North Herts NHS Trust, which runs Lister, says it has used the Department of Health and Social Care’s funding to make better use of the space to improve patient flow.

The redevelopment includes a new reception area, triage and GP rooms, and new medical equipment.

Anna Swift, head of nursing for acute and emergency medicine, said: “It’s important we provide the best experience possible for our patients and one part of that means making sure our facilities are the best they can possibly be.

“The waiting area now provides more rooms for clinicians and patients to discuss their condition privately.

“The layout not only provides a better environment for patients, but has also helped us improve how they are treated and cared for.”
