Chase Farm Hospital redevelopment

This autumn, the newest and most digitally advanced hospital in the NHS will open.


The new Chase Farm Hospital will offer world class facilities which will help us deliver an even better experience for our patients and staff.

The new hospital will continue to provide out-patient services (including children’s, women’s and diagnostic tests), an urgent care centre (treating minor injuries and illnesses that are urgent but not life-threatening), an older persons assessment unit (treating patients aged 65 and over referred by their GPs. The unit will offer patients a range of treatments and diagnostic tests), an endoscopy unit and chemotherapy day unit.

The hospital will also be the location for most of the Royal Free London’s planned surgery. It will have eight operating theatres including four ‘barn theatres’, specifically designed for orthopaedic work, a dedicated day surgery area and 50 surgical in-patient beds.

The site is also being developed to include family homes and apartments set within a landscaped environment. A new primary and secondary school will provide much needed school places for new and existing residents.

Construction of the new hospital will be complete in summer 2018. Services will move into the new building in phases over the summer months before the hospital fully opens in autumn 2018.

If you have an appointment over the summer months it may be in the new hospital. If so, we will let you know where to go. From the autumn all patients will be seen in the new hospital.
