Cameron vow hospital to face merger
Tuesday 13 September 2011
A hospital that David Cameron vowed to save while in opposition is to lose its accident and maternity units and will merge with another.
The Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley, said the decision on Chase Farm Hospital in Enfield, north London, followed advice from an independent panel. Its A&E and maternity services will be centralised at Barnet and North Middlesex hospitals, but the move is opposed by residents, Tory MPs and nearby councils.
When Mr Cameron visited Chase Farm in October 2007, he said: "The closure of the units here [is] just one example of Labour's cuts to the NHS. It is completely unjustifiable." PA
