  A healthcare company has won the contract to run a new GP surgery.

Haverstock Healthcare will run primary care at the new Ordnance Unity Centre, in Hertford Road, Enfield Lock.

The hub is due to open this autumn and will offer people a new library, dental practice and community hall for people in the area.

The healthcare company beat two other applicants for the contract and will take over the existing services at Ordnance Road surgery in mid-September.

Councillor Don McGowan, Enfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for health and adult social care, said: “The Ordnance Unity Centre is bringing much needed services to the local community who have helped us to develop the centre.

“I am pleased and proud that the council has successfully worked with young and older people to provide medical, cultural and community services in a modern central building that will be accessible for everyone who uses it.

“It is reassuring to know that an award - winning team of doctors will be working from the new centre and that they are prepared to work from 171 Ordnance Road until they can move into it. This will give them a chance to get to know local people and support them and their families.”

A spokesman for NHS England, London, said: “Haverstock Healthcare is an established provider of primary care services and we are pleased to award the contract for the Ordnance Unity Centre surgery to them following their successful application to our procurement process.

“We want to attract the best providers and drive up standards in primary care across London and we believe that the new surgery will offer a high standard of much-needed GP services to a part of Enfield where registration is very low.”

He added: “As well as meeting the demand for services, the surgery will help support people in the community and reduce unnecessary A&E attendances, reducing pressure on local hospitals and improving the quality of care for patients in Enfield.”

Haverstock Healthcare is a GP Consortium established in 2008 by a small group of GP practices in Camden to allow local GPs to form an organisation large enough to compete with global firms bidding for NHS contracts in their borough and to keep services relevant, local and familiar to our patients. Haverstock Healthcare already operates the Urgent Care Centres at Barnet General Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital in Pond Street Hampstead. for more information see the web site at www.haverstockhealth
