"overall not impressed with the lack of services"

About: Hemel Hempstead Hospital

What could be improved

bring back A&E and other important services, the hospital is more like a doctors surgery than a hospital now, its lacking in vital services that local residents need. In an emergency one could die within half an hour, yet we are now expected to travel to watford in an emergency which can take far longer than that. You are playing with people's lives!
