Green Travel Focus Groups - Calling Patient Volunteers
West Hertfordshire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust is looking for volunteers to join a focus group to help develop its Green Travel Plan. “The Trust is committed to reaching Net Zero by 2040 so it’s important to look at how people currently travel to our sites and access our services, and what could be done to improve that in the future.”
The Trust has already had a good response to a survey of staff and patients. The focus groups will be held via MS Teams and take 90-minutes. They will be held on 3 August and 4 August from 5.30pm to 7pm. The focus groups will provide an opportunity to find out in more detail how people travel, any alternatives they would consider, and any barriers that currently make it difficult to get the trust’s sites using public transport or active travel such as cycling or walking.
The Trust is working with consultants Systra, and volunteers should click here to register their interest on the website. Please note that there is a maximum number for each group, so volunteering to join does not automatically mean being invited to attend. Those who are asked to contribute will receive a £40 thank-you for their time.
If you have any queries, please contact Communications Project Manager Rosemary Carney at firstname.lastname@example.org
Slimming World free Weight Management Service for Hertfordshire
From 7th May 2022 Oviva, in Partnership with Slimming World, have been delivering Hertfordshire’s Tier 2 adult weight management service.
GP practices across the country have been at the forefront of the NHS's response to the COVID-19 outbreak and are experiencing rising demand for services. As a result, Hertfordshire County Council have produced an e-screen to promote the Tier 2 self-referral pathway. This means patients are able to access the service without seeing a healthcare professional (eligibility criteria applies).
