An NHS Trust has binned plans to relocate healthcare services from Tring to Berkhamsted after a patient consultation.

The Hertfordshire Community Trust (HCT), which provides health services throughout the county, wanted to move three services which were held once a week at Tring Clinic to nearby Berkhamsted.

The plan was due to save cash, although bosses have not revealed how much.

All three services will remain in Tring, but not at the clinic on Station Road.

The children’s eye care clinic and children’s speech and language therapy sessions will now be held at Rothschild House Surgery on Chapel Street.

The lymphoedema nurse, who cares for patients with swelling, will now visit local people in their own homes.

Marion Dunstone, the trust’s associate director of operations, said: “We would like to thank all those that gave us their views on the proposals.

“We very much appreciate hearing what local people and patients think of our services and how they could improve.”

The trust has contacted all those that took part in its consultation to let them know about the decision.
