All services at Chase Farm Hospital remain open while we construct the new building.
Some services have been relocated into a few core areas of the existing site. This has made room for the building works and enabled staff to begin working as they will in the new hospital layout.
In February 2018 the route between the Highlands wing and Clocktower building will be permanently diverted through Clinic 10 (located on the ground floor of Highlands wing). Access from the Highlands wing to x-ray, MRI and theatres will not change and all lifts and stairways in the Highlands wing will remain open.
