Campaigners who fought the closure of Chase Farm Hospital’s accident and emergency will march again this weekend.

The North East London Council of Action organised protests against the downgrade at the hospital in The Ridgeway, Enfield, which closed its A&E on December 9 last year.

Bill Rogers, leader of the campaign, says the strike comes following the state of emergencies that were declared at Barnet Hospital last month.

He said: “When Muhammad Naveed died after his mother took him to the closed down A&E at chase farm, we knew something needed to be done.

“The news that a state of emergency was declared at Barnet Hospital has compounded the state that we are in, people will continue to die because there aren’t enough emergency units.

“We want to see Chase Farm’s A&E reopened because we cannot continue to go on like this. Its disgraceful.”

The march will take place today, Saturday, March 8, at 2pm and will start at the war memorial on Windmill Hill in Enfield.
