From 30 June 2022, this website will not be updated
From 1 July 2022, Clinical Commissioning Groups will be cease to exist. Commissioning functions and information that has been previously held by East and North Hertfordshire CCG is transferring to the new NHS Hertfordshire and West Essex Integrated Care Board (HWEICB) on 1 July 2022.
HWEICB will become the new data controller. Any questions about the use of data (including patient data) by the new ICB should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
There are no changes to how local residents access NHS frontline services in Hertfordshire and West Essex as part of these changes.
This accessibility statement applies to the East and North Hertfordshire CCG website.
This site is currently being redesigned to meet updated accessibility guidance.
This website is run by East and North Hertfordshire CCG. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also make the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet (https://mcmw.abilitynet.org.uk) has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
East and North Hertfordshire CCG is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is not fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard and is undergoing a rebuild to assure compliance.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs as meeting papers for our Governing Body meetings in public, with information on how users can access our services, and forms published as Word documents.
We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.
