Changes to hospital services in Hemel Hempstead have been strongly opposed by the Dacorum Hospital Action Group. The group was formed in 1975 and has campaigned to keep vital hospital services in Hemel Hempstead.

Warning signIndustrial action is being taken by members of Unite The Union and Unison. This may affect council services over the Easter Holiday and weeks thereafter. Residents are asked to place their bins out as usual on their scheduled collection day. Residents can check on our website or follow us on social media for regular updates. We will do our best to maintain essential services and minimise disruption as far as possible. We apologise in advance for any disruption caused. ×
