Watford forms part of the London-Hertfordshire-Cambridge pharmaceutical and biotech cluster which is home to one of the world’s leading concentrations of healthcare companies, talent and research, providing:

  • Ready access to a large pool of pharmaceutical and healthcare employees within a short travel time
  • Access to research talent with five of Europe’s top research universities within 1 hour
  • Fast, easy access to UK regulatory bodies and government departments in central London
  • The Pharmaceutical Industry Network Group, affectionately known as PING, was established in 2010 by the Pharmaceuticals & Life Sciences practice of Watford-based law firm Veale Wasbrough Vizards LLP to bring people together from across the pharmaceutical supply chain in the local area.

    From its founding membership of seven local businesses PING has grown significantly and now boasts over 100 sector members from Watford, Hertfordshire and beyond.

Welcome back to Watford town centre – shop local, stay safe

Watford town centre, and other retail areas across the town, are gearing up to welcome people back as non-essential shops and venues have started to re-open, with a range of measures in place to make sure they can shop safely and with confidence.

Shops and businesses are doing what is needed to keep their staff and customers safe. We are looking forward to welcoming people back to the High Street and other shopping areas across the town. Whilst they may look and feel a bit different, we are all looking forward to a return of some sort of normality, bringing vibrancy back to the town!

Watford businesses have done an amazing job to make sure they can open safely, while we all as individuals should do our part keeping a safe distance from others and washing or sanitising our hands regularly.
