1. IMPORTANT REMINDER: PUBLIC MEETING ON 30 MARCH ABOUT THE REDUCTION OF NHS SERVICES IN ENFIELD:

  • IMPORTANT REMINDER:  PUBLIC MEETING ON 30 MARCH ABOUT THE  REDUCTION OF NHS SERVICES IN ENFIELD

Thursday 30 March 2017 2pm-4pm – Community House, 311 Fore Street, N9 OPZ Edmonton.  Hosted by Enfield Voluntary Action

Another public event will take place  on 24 April, 6-7.30pm at Enfield Clinical Commissioning Group, Holbrook House, Cockfosters Road, EN4 0DR.

In the FLDRA messages we sent last week we included an article about the proposals to restrict access to some NHS treatments in Enfield. These changes could affect all Enfield residents and it is important that we attend these meetings or complete the consultation questionnaire if we want to have a say. Following public concern about the short consultation period, which was initially intended to end this week, the consultation has been extended to 30 April.

The NHS Enfield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) wants to tighten up the criteria used to decide who can access some common medical procedures, such as knee replacements, some types of breast restoration, treatment of some scars, operations for hernias, fitting of hearing aids, removal of bunions and others.

The CCG states that the purpose of the proposals is to avoid the use of procedures that are of limited benefit to patients, but community groups are very concerned about the possibility that patients will face long delays and may have to be in severe pain or discomfort before they can access treatment. The Enfield Over 50’s Forum, one of the largest community groups in the borough, has urged  “everyone who values the NHS to make their voices heard” and resist a “suffer in silence” future.

Complete online questionnaire

If you know about any community group or association that wants to be consulted, CCG can arrange to visit any groups to discuss the consultation on request. Please contact communications@enfieldccg.nhs.uk if you would like to request a meeting.

 If you would like printed copies of the consultation document, equality impact assessment or evidence pack, or if you have any other enquiries, please contact communications@enfieldccg.nhs.uk or call 0203 688 2814

2. QUIETER NEIGHBOURHOODS CONSULTATION ENDS THIS FRIDAY 31 MARCH: 

Do you want a Quieter Neighbourhood?

Is your neighbourhood affected by too much traffic? If it’s fast or heavy enough that you wouldn’t feel confident cycling in your area, or crossing your own road, or letting your child play on the street, then this is for you.

Enfield Council are asking what we think of our residential streets and neighbourhoods for its Quieter Neighbourhoods scheme. The aim is to make our neighbourhoods better for walking, cycling, play and sense of community. The perception survey is here:

https://www.consultations.cycleenfield.co.uk/traffic-and-transportation/qn-perception-survey/

Better Streets for Enfield (a local group calling for more people-friendly, less traffic-dominated streets to benefit everyone in the borough),  are  encouraging people to respond to the survey, raising awareness of the impact of traffic on our lives, and making suggestions for improvement following good practice in other parts of London / Europe: http://betterstreets.co.uk/do-you-want-a-quieter-neighbourhood/

5. ENFIELD CHILDREN COME OUT TO PLAY!:

We have previously reported about the Play Quarter’s scheme to encourage local parents to organise “playstreet” days, in which your road can be closed to traffic and children can safely play outside under the supervision of local parents.  The deadline  to apply for playstreets happening April 2017-March 2018 has been extended to 30 April 2017. For applications to close your road contact traffic@enfield.gov.uk

If you need any help, or want to know more about how to get a play street going, please do be in touch with:

6.PARK TOILETS SERVICE UNDER REVIEW: SOME CLOSURES POSSIBLE:

LB Enfield is reviewing the provision of park toilets, in light of the cost of maintaining the service and also the problem of vandalism.  Of the current 16 toilet facilities, one has already  been identified for full closure, at Tatem Park, a location which is particularly affected by vandalism . The Council says it is consulting Friends of Parks groups before final decisions are made. If you are concerned, contact your nearest park’s “Friends” group or contact the Regeneration & Environment Department directly.

In a letter to one of our members, the Regeneration & Environment Department said:

Against the background of these ongoing financial and operational pressures, the Council is considering alternative, innovative approaches to toilet provision and exploring partnership opportunities as a means of improving the service.

 The Council has identified the following options for future toilet provision depending on the site context:

  1.  Continuing all year round opening and daily cleaning of toilets at destination parks but looking at alternative methods of delivering the service.
  2. Where feasible, including the management of toilets as part of new café leases or negotiating with café operators to take on this task during their current lease term.
  3. Where feasible, repurposing the building in order to reduce the risk of vandalism and abuse e.g. redeveloping as a combined café & toilet
  4. Opening toilets seasonally or for special events only
  5. Opening sportsground toilets only at weekends when pitches are being used
  6. Closing some sites permanently and redirecting park users to nearby Community Toilet Scheme toilets or relying on changing room toilets to cater for weekend sports usage.
  7. Independently of the options outline above, the Council intends to expand the Community Toilet Scheme and invite suitable businesses in the vicinity of parks across the borough to join the scheme
