ⓘ Healthcare in Hertfordshire

From 1947 to 1965 NHS services in Hertfordshire were managed by the North-West Metropolitan, East Anglian and North-East Metropolitan Regional Hospital Boards. In 1974 the Boards were abolished and replaced by Regional Health Authorities. Hertfordshire came under the North West Metropolitan RHA. Regions were reorganised in 1996 and Hertfordshire came under the North West Thames Regional Health Authority. Hertfordshire was one of the Area Health Authorities, subdivided into four District Authorities: North, East, South West and South West. In 1993 the county was divided into three Health authorities: East and North Hertfordshire, North West Hertfordshire, South West Hertfordshire. Regional Health Authorities were reorganised and renamed Strategic Health Authorities in 2002. Hertfordshire was under Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire SHA. In 2006 regions were again reorganised and Hertfordshire came under NHS East of England until that was abolished in 2013. There was one Primary Care Trust for the area.
