About our partnership with Royal Free London

North Mid has partnered with Royal Free London to help us deliver better care for Enfield and Haringey residents and more opportunities for our staff.  

The partnership will both generate savings from better efficiency and also improve existing – and create new – services for local people. We anticipate a number of benefits including reduced waiting times and more specialist care locally, as well as improved training and career opportunities and development for staff. 

Collaboration during covid-19 pandemic

Collaborations between our trusts have already been strengthened during the pandemic, helping our hospitals to respond to demand and maintain services like surgery and cancer care. Over the coming years, our partnership could make a significant difference to the health and wellbeing of residents in Enfield and Haringey.  

The partnership executive is made up of senior directors from each trust to deliver the partnership’s strategy. It will meet monthly and report to the partnership board, which will combine non-executive directors from both trusts to oversee the strategic leadership of the partnership on behalf of the two trust’s boards. 

Caroline Clarke, Royal Free London group chief executive, will be the accountable officer for Royal Free London as well as North Mid with effect from 1 April 2021. Both trusts remain statutory, independent, NHS organisations with their own boards, and Dr Nnenna Osuji has been appointed as the new chief executive for North Mid, and will be joining in the summer.
