Fireworks won’t be the only thing launching this month as a local health trust celebrates its fifth anniversary.

New website coincides with anniversary celebrations

Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust – which provides a wide range of health and social care in people's homes, community settings and in its community hospitals – has marked its milestone year with a brand new website.

Patients, staff and the public now have easier access to a variety of service information including finding their nearest locations, who is eligible for it, what will happen at appointments and much more.

Chris Knibb, Head of Communication and Engagement at the Trust, said: “We are delighted with the new look which aims to be very user friendly and easy to navigate. It was the perfect opportunity to mark our fifth anniversary.

“In addition we have also sought sponsorship to organise an afternoon tea party for all our staff to help celebrate the occasion.”

Other features on the new website includes:

  • Career opportunities, our current vacancies plus benefits to staff working at the Trust#
  • A list of health conditions and advice on how to treat them or when to see a doctor
  • Updates on news and events going on across the Trust 
  • The ability to join our Trust as members
  • Direct access to the Trust’s Facebook and Twitter pages. 
     

The new website can also be accessed via smartphones and tablets.

Chris added: “We provide health care across the whole of Hertfordshire so it is our aim to make sure information is readily available at the press of a button whether that be at home, work or out and about in the community.”
