Important changes at Chase Farm Hospital

Important changes at Chase Farm Hospital

Some important changes are taking place at Chase Farm Hospital over the next few weeks. 

In order to make room for the building works due to start early next year, some services are going to be relocated to different parts of the site.  Chase Farm Hospital managers believe moving them now means that once works start disruption to patients will be minimised and all services can be kept operational until they move into the new hospital building in 2018.  These temporary locations have been refurbished to provide an improved environment for patients and staff. 

The Chase Farm urgent care centre will be moving overnight on Tuesday 4 August. After this date it will be located opposite the Hunters Way entrance (see map) to the hospital site. Moving the service overnight means that the opening hours (8am to 10pm) will remain unaffected throughout the move.
