The opening of this new GP practice is the result of a collaboration between Healthwatch Haringey (which is delivered by Public Voice), Haringey CCG, Haringey Council, NHS England and Lee Valley Estates. The practice, located on Lebus Street in Hale Village, will provide much needed primary care capacity for residents in the Tottenham Hale area.
Short speeches were given by Healthwatch Haringey Chair, Sharon Grant OBE, David Lammy MP, Councillor Jason Arthur (Haringey’s Lead Member for Health), Dr Peter Christian, Haringey CCG’s Chair, and Liz Wise, Director of Primary Care Commissioning at NHS England (London Region).
Attendees had a tour of the practice and an opportunity to meet practice staff from Lawrence House Surgery who will be running the new practice.
Sharon Grant OBE, Chair, Public Voice said: “The opening of the new GP practice was instigated by local people who worked closely with us at Healthwatch Haringey to highlight poor GP access in the Tottenham Hale area, and indeed elsewhere in the borough. Whilst we are delighted with the new facility, we hope that it will be the first of many more in other parts of Haringey.”
Dr Peter Christian, Haringey CCG’s Chair said: “It has taken a solid collaborative effort to make opening the new GP surgery in Tottenham Hale a reality and we would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work. We are delighted that local residents will now be able to access primary care services much more easily, when they need it.”
Fiona Erne, Head of Primary Care in North Central London for NHS England (London) said: “We are delighted that Tottenham Hale Medical Practice has now opened, responding to the concerns rightly highlighted by Healthwatch Haringey and local people. The practice will provide high quality GP services for residents and will make a real difference in the local community.”
