13.00 Leave base hospital. Please note that it is very likely that it will take over an hour to get to Welwyn and park etc, so please aim to leave your base hospital by 1.00 pm. From junction 4 of the A1M (not the M1), take the A414 towards Hertford. After crossing the railway line, you will see the Bush Hall Hotel on the left. Turn off the A414 and then turn left at the lights to follow the A1000 towards WGC. At roundabout turn right and follow road through residential area with strict 30 mph speed limit.
