Chase Farm Hospital

Volume 458: debated on Monday 12 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether the option to retain Chase Farm hospital’s (a) accident and emergency department and (b) consultant-led maternity services is in accordance with the Government’s national clinical strategy. (124710)

As part of the work leading up to the launch of the formal public consultation on the Barnet, Enfield and Haringey clinical strategy, NHS London has asked Professor Sir George Alberti, the NHS National Director for Emergency Access, to work with the local NHS and offer an independent view on the clinical case for change.

It is for the local NHS, in partnership with strategic health authorities and other local stakeholders, to plan, develop and improve services for local people. Any change to local services would only happen after full public consultation with local people.
