Chase Farm Hospital is not closed
Last updated 11-Oct-11 16:18
In September, the Secretary of State for Health, Andrew Lansley, announced that he had accepted the Independent Reconfiguration Panel’s assessment on the Barnet Enfield & Haringey clinical strategy and gave the green light to proceed with case for change.
This decision means a new future for Chase Farm Hospital which will continue to treat the majority of patients currently using it.
The A&E department will become an urgent care centre, but this change will not happen until about this time next year because of the need to build sufficient capacity at Barnet and North Middlesex Hospitals.
Consultant led maternity services will not transfer until the middle of 2013. Extra capacity is being built at Barnet and North Middlesex hospitals.
Elective surgery, outpatients and diagnostics will continue on the Chase Farm site.
If you have an appointment or treatment booked at Chase Farm you will continue to be seen here. Our staff will be working to maintain our high clinical standards and care for the individual patient.
Detailed information on the changes coming to your local hospital services will be made available over the coming months.
