Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Clinical Strategy

Higher quality, safer care for everyone

The Barnet, Enfield and Haringey (BEH) Clinical Strategy was implemented in 2013 to improve health services for local people in the three boroughs.
In November 2013, Barnet Hospital and North Middlesex University Hospital opened their new, upgraded units to provide modern maternity services for the people of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey.

In December 2013, accident and emergency services were moved from Chase Farm hospital to Barnet and North Middlesex hospitals.

These changes to how clinicians deliver these services bring benefits to patients such as:

• improved access to services at GP surgeries and in the community
• expanded and redeveloped emergency services at Barnet and North Middlesex University hospitals
• expanded and redeveloped maternity services at Barnet and North Middlesex University hospitals
• urgent care services at Chase Farm Hospital, including assessment centres for children and older people
• expanding planned surgery at Chase Farm Hospital.

Chase Farm Hospital Redevelopment

On 1 July 2014, Chase Farm Hospital became part of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. Following this acquisition one of our first commitments will be to redevelop Chase Farm Hospital, making it fit for purpose to deliver 21st century healthcare and to provide world class care close to where our patients live. Many of the buildings at Chase Farm Hospital are in a poor state of repair and the site urgently needs to be redeveloped. The current site is outdated and has dispersed buildings spread over nearly 37 acres, which creates numerous logistical difficulties for patients and the staff caring for them.

We plan to build modern, high quality healthcare facilities while re-using the surplus land to provide new housing, public spaces and other facilities. The proceeds from surplus land sales will help fund the development.
