Campaigning to save Chase Farm Hospital in Enfield. The hospital's closure will have dire consequences for people and healthcare in Haringey. 8PM update: Fellow blogger and Conservative, Cllr. Robert Rams, was on the demo and has written about it on his blog. Tom Mason (pitured) has more pictures on Flickr. Thanks, mate!!!

Always great to put a face to the written word. Good luck with your campaign, I hope it doesn't fall on deaf ears.

Cheers Justin, it was a good event.

I even got handed a copy of 'Socialist W@nker' which was good for a laugh on the way home. ( ;-P)

Unless Chase Farm has improved a lot in the last few years have you asked yourself it is really worth saving?

Justin Hinchcliffe said...

At one stage, Chase Farm had no stars. I do not agree with the star system; clinical care can be crap but the finances be 'sound' which will automatically provide one star. Are you seriously saying that Enfield should only have one hospital, and share it with Haringey?

Problem is that everyone talks about saving the hospital but not about how to save it. Clearly the it cannot afford to be kept in its current state so why not sell of half the land and build a new modern hospital in it's place with the money?. Sometimes a lot of these hospitals cost so much to run that it just doesn't make economic sense to keep them.

AJ, there isn't a proposal to re-locate/build new services. We'd all be in favour of moderning etc, but these are just crusl cuts to meet Gordon Brown's whitehall targets.
