Staff at Hemel Hempstead’s urgent care centre were treated to a tea party in recognition of their hard work.

A string duo accompanied the afternoon tea as board members from West Herts Hospitals NHS Trust took the opportunity to meet and chat with medical workers at the Hillfield Road site.

Trust spokesman Paul Gough said: “This was an opportunity for the Trust to say thank you to the hospital staff at Hemel Hempstead for their hard work over the years.

“It is a small but important event where the board could thank them personally.”

The event, organised by the Trust’s staff support co-ordinator, was the first of three to be held across West Herts hospital sites.
