A hospital’s new building has officially been opened.

Chase Farm, in The Ridgeway, Enfield, took four years and £200 million to complete.

The old Chase Farm building in The Ridgeway has been closed and all services have been relocated to the new building.

The new hospital will serve a population of 1.6 million people and deliver more than 10,000 operations each year.

Parts of the old Chase Farm Hospital are more than 130 years old, so the front and clock tower will be kept as part of conservation plans.

Natalie Forrest, chief executive of Chase Farm Hospital, said: “It’s exciting to welcome patients into our brand new hospital.

“We are very proud and know it will offer the people of Enfield, as well as the wider population we serve, a brilliant environment to deliver the very best of modern healthcare.”

The hospital is an entirely new construction located nearby the previous building which has been sold to developers to turn into housing and a school.

People will now be able to view their medical history, results and upcoming appointments online.

An appointment manager app for phones will also be tested, to enable patients to check-in and be called to their appointments from their mobile device.
