                            West Hertfordshire

Each of WHHT's hospitals are located close enough to enjoy the benefits of London whilst avoiding the inflated living costs.

There are excellent roal and rail connections to London as well as many of the UK's other big cities.  Central London can be reached within about an hour from all three hospitals by train.

Accommodation

Hertfordshire offers a wide range of options for living. You can choose, as many of our staff do, to live on London's nearby northern fringes. Others prefer to live in one of the larger towns in the area, which offer the convenience of urban living, at a lower price than London.

Alternatively, you may prefer to take advantage of the peace and quiet in the lovely rural villages of this famously leafy county.  Areas such as Kings Langley, Tring and Wheathampstead may offer just what you're looking for.

Whether you're looking to buy or rent, there's a town or country property out there that suits you - and those who come with you!

For some nurses, the best option is to rent one of the apartments owned by the hospital.  They currently have 50 apartments that cost approximately £500 per month.  Your recruiter can advise you on availability if you are interested in this option.

Local Transport

How do I get to work?

This part of the country enjoys extremely good local transport links, so getting to work shouldn't be a worry.  You will easily learn the local bus routes and timetables to get you where you need to be!

Rail

There are five main lines into London from Watford alone - you can be in the heart of the city in around an hour! Watford even has a London underground station, with another to come.

The county is well positioned on mainline tracks to the Midlands, north-west and Scotland, so if you're interested in taking some longer, scenic train trips, this could be the perfect base for you.

Road 

The M1 and M25 motorways pass close by the hospitals, as do the A1 and A41. There are discounted car parking facilities for staff at all three sites and a salary sacrifice scheme, so you can buy a car more affordably.

Schools and Colleges

Hertfordshire is well-known for its excellent schools - some of the highest performing schools in the country are in the county and the surrounding area. We have put together the list below to help you get started.

For further education options, West Herts College has a brand new campus, near the centre of Watford. For those looking for University level education, The University of Hertfordshire is situated in the town of Hatfield, which is located in the centre of the county. It was recently deemed the 52nd best university in the world by Times Higher Education.

Nightlife, Shopping and Leisure

There is plenty to see and do in Hertfordshire, no matter your tastes.
