2.2 What will relocating to a new site mean in terms of travel for Harlow residents?

The proposed greenfield site will be easy to get to, with road access for visitors and blue light traffic significantly improved from our current site on Hamstel Road.

The new location is at the end of the eastern Sustainable Transport Corridor which will extend into the site and provide priority access for buses, cyclists and pedestrians.

We are preparing a comprehensive travel plan with local councils and specialists to promote sustainable travel to and provide appropriate vehicle space and car parking on our new site. Our priority concern is that all necessary journeys to our new hospital are convenient, affordable and quick for staff and patients.

Inpatient comment:

Everyone offered words of such reassurance and kindness. I felt so cared for and the communication with me at all times was fantastic.
