An extra £27million has been made available to improve Enfield's healthcare services

An extra £27 million has been made available for Enfield’s healthcare for the next two years.

The Enfield Clinical Commissioning Group has announced that it will be receiving an increase of 4.35 per cent or £14million in next year’s budget and a £13.4 million increase in 2015.

There will also be an extra £5.9million provided for the Better Care Fund to support health and social care in Enfield.

The increase in next year’s budget is the fifth highest boost in the capital with the 2015 increase coming in as the fourth largest.

Enfield North MP Nick de Bois said: “I am pleased the government have listened and delivered a large real terms increase in funding for Enfield. This new increased allocation begins to address the years of underfunding by the last Labour government who failed to recognise the particular healthcare needs of the changing Enfield population.”

Southgate MP David Burrowes:  “The Prime Minister told me and Parliament that Enfield is getting an increase in funding for primary care and the Government has now delivered. This £33 million increase is much needed for our area to plug the gap when Enfield's population increase and health inequalities were ignored.

"It is also very timely following the changes in hospital services and the need for improved primary care.”
