Some of the land is being developed by builders as new homes, a new low-secure psychiatric unit is proposed and work is due to start in 2015 if approved by the local planning committee. A public consultation was carried out during 2007 on reorganising services between Chase Farm Hospital and Barnet Hospital, one option would have transformed Chase Farm to a community hospital with inpatient and major emergency care transferred to Barnet.
The other option concentrated on planned care at Chase Farm, with maternity, the proposals were intended to maximise clinical effectiveness given limited human and financial resources, they predicated a substantial investment in community health provision. The local NHS Primary Care Trusts determined at the end of this consultation to proceed with Option 2, two candidates, Catherine Wilkinson and Kieran McGregor, for the Save Chase Farm movement were elected to the local council in the local elections of May 2006. They however lost their seats in the 2010 election, the Accident and Emergency Department at Chase Farm Hospital closed on 9 December 2013 following the determination of the Barnet and Haringey strategy. Following the dismissal of Enfield Councils judicial review request, the maternity and accident & emergency units at Chase Farm Hospital closed in mid-November, since 2014 the hospital has been part of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust. The Trust discovered a large backlog of patients waiting for elective treatment that year, by April 2015 the trust had reviewed 7,174 patients who have now received treatment.
