Watford Hospital A&E has closed to further patients due to a critical incident being declared at the hospital.

The Watford General Hospital are now advising people to visit a different hospital instead. This includes those suffering coronavirus symptoms.

The Hospital told people  “Please DO NOT attend Watford General’s emergency department until further notice, even in an emergency.

“Go to your next nearest hospital with an emergency department. Anyone with non-urgent issues should seek advice via https://111.nhs.uk

The reason behind A&E being closed has not been expanded.

If you require hospital treatment and are within the Watford area it is advised that you use another hospital across London.
