Parents can now register births at Edmonton Surestart centre

Moves have been made to make it easier for parents to register new babies.

From January 17, parents will be able to register newborn children at Edmonton Surestart offices in the South Shopping Mall in St George's Chambers in Edmonton.

Previously those wising to register their infant had to travel to Enfield Borough Council's Register Office in Gentlemen's Row. 

Councillors believe the addition of another venue will make life easier for new parents and hope to make registration possible at other places in the borough if it is succesful.

Parents are legally obliged to register their babies within 42 days of their birth.

Good timing - just as another wave of immigrants is due!! Statistics show that the birth rate among immigrants is much higher than among the indigenous population.

Births that occur in LBEnfield have to be registered within Enfield. Since the maternity unit at Chase Farm Hospital site has been closed it would have seemed more logical to have registration sessions available at North Middlesex University Hospital during the time post natal clinic checks are being undertaken
