north middlesex hospital join the discussionThe North Middlesex Hospital's management board is due to take a decision on whether or not to join the Royal Free London group at its October meeting.

The North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust (to give it its official title) became a "clinical partner" of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust in 2016.  This partnership was one of the measures taken in order to overcome a serious crisis in the North Mid's accident and emergency department.  Subsequently the North Mid has been exploring options for a closer working relationship with the Royal Free group.  The options include absorption into the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.  Two other local hospitals, Chase Farm and Barnet, are already part of the Royal Free London group.

In July, Healthwatch Enfield hosted two consultation events to provide information and gather feedback about the North Mid's partnership options with the Royal Free. Healthwatch will be publishing a report on the feedback received at these events and says that senior leadership at the North Mid should consider when looking at the options.

The North Mid Trust Board will be announcing their decision at a public board meeting on Thursday 4th October 2018 (9:30am – 11:30am). The meeting is open to members of the public; more information about it can be found on the North Mid website.
