 On 24 April the CCG  informed that, following the announcement of the General Election, “we are now in the pre-election period, which means that as of today, 24 April 2017, Enfield CCG

  • will be postponing any scheduled public meetings where discussion or decisions on the Adherence to Evidence Based Medicine programme take place
  • will not make any public statements or carry out any public engagement on changes to NHS services – this includes social media, websites and traditional media except for routine health messages
  • will be extending the consultation period to 30 June 2017 to take into account the pre-election period and allow time for the events that are postponed to be rescheduled. The consultation remains open and you can access the documents and the online survey on our website http://www.enfieldccg.nhs.uk/adherence-to-evidence-based-medicine.htm

Summer Warnings- Windows, back doors, side entrances & gates, and sheds-  pay attention to locking up and warn neighbours to do the same.

8. FAIRER FUNDING FOR ENFIELD CAMPAIGN: WHY DO WE GET LESS FUNDING THAN THE WEALTHIEST BOROUGHS? VOLUNTEERS NEEDED ON 5 and 6 MAY: 

(We are running this article again due to the importance of this campaign).  

The Over 50’s Forum is leading a campaign to challenge the reduction in government funding for Enfield Borough, at a time when we are listed as the12th most deprived borough in London and the one with the highest number of children living in poverty.

After the launch of the campaign in 2016, Monty Meth MBE, President of the Forum, explained:

“Since 2003/04 it is estimated that Enfield has lost some £100 million in “floor damping” given to other councils. Yet we get far less cash per head than many wealthier boroughs and this means our council’s help to community organisations and services is being cut even further.

Enfield receives government funding of £496.10 per head of population while Westminster gets £917.59 per person, Hammersmith and Fulham receives £900 and Kensington and Chelsea £815 – when all the boroughs carry out the same tasks.

Council leader Doug Taylor says we get less funding than we should because the government uses old population data. Funding to support councils in tackling the serious issue of homelessness is 15 years old. We have the fifth worst homelessness problem in the country, yet we only received £555,000 while other boroughs received up to £8million a year.”

The Forum has organised a petition that has cross-political party support and needs lots more signatures.

The Forum needs volunteers prepared to give up a couple of hours of their time and specifically  on Friday 5 May and Saturday 6 May collecting signatures at local shopping centres. No special knowledge is needed – volunteers will be provided with information on the campaign.

Please contact the Forum office on info@enfieldover50sforum.org.uk or 020 8807 2076
