Barnet, Enfield and Haringey clinical strategy

NHS service improvement

The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust firmly believes in providing a world-class patient experience through ever-improving healthcare services. 

The Barnet, Enfield and Haringey clinical strategy made a number of changes to services in order to improve healthcare for people in Barnet, Enfield and Haringey. These include:

  • expansion and redevelopment of accident and emergency services at Barnet and North Middlesex hospitals
  • expansion and redevelopment of neonatal and maternity services at Barnet Hospital and North Middlesex Hospital, including the development and expansion of midwife-led birthing units 
  • development of urgent care services at Chase Farm Hospital, including assessment centres for children and older people
  • improvements to day-to-day healthcare, also known as primary care

To back up our strong commitment to the best patient experience, we understand that we must:

  • ensure local medical services meet London-wide quality standards for NHS treatment
  • ensure the right hospital staff are available to provide healthcare services, including providing the right level of consultant cover
  • reduce the risks associated with the duplication of medical services across hospitals
  • invest in local hospital facilities, bringing them up to modern standards
  • deliver a sustainable future for local NHS treatment
  • expand planned surgery provision at Chase Farm Hospital
