– Doug Taylor, Enfield Council leader
For many years the people of Enfield have been assured that improvements to primary care would be in place before the closure of the A&E and maternity services at Chase Farm Hospital.
The CCG's decision today to go ahead without these promises being fulfilled is a grave breach of our residents' legitimate expectations.
These conditions required that a number of new sites were to be developed to provide improved primary care services to the people of Enfield before the A&E and maternity departments could be closed.
Enfield council is to mount a legal challenge over the closure of maternity and A&E units at Chase Farm that David Cameron once vowed to save.
