It was an NHS birthday to remember for Lister Hospital yesterday, as it discharged its final coronavirus patient from the Intensive Care Unit – a landmark moment in the hospital’s fight against COVID-19.
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”.
A Stevenage mum-of-three has said during Children’s Grief Awareness Week that her family “couldn’t have coped” with the loss of her husband without the help of Garden House Hospice Care’s child bereavement service.
North Herts and Stevenage councils have spoken out about Herts County Council’s recent decision to cut £1.5 million from the amount it gives to district and borough councils to reward kerbside recycling.
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.
