Private obstetrics reinstated

6th May 2015

Having been instructed to obtain an emergency injunction, Simon Silver has successfully obtained an interim injunction against the West Hertfordshire NHS Trust preventing them from withdrawing their private obstetrics service from our clients who are heavily pregnant.

The Watford General Hospital, which is under the control and management of the West Hertfordshire NHS Trust, has for circa 25 years provided a private obstetrics service. However, following a CQC inspection they decided to withdraw this service with just 10 days notice.

This left many women, some of whom were about to give birth imminently, with no alternative plans.
