It gives me great pleasure to present this massive petition containing 16,243 signatures collected by the great men and women of the constituency of Broxbourne door to door and on the forecourt of Tesco. Each name contained in the petition represents someone expressing their concern about the scaling back of health services in Enfield, north London and the county of Hertfordshire. The petitioners fear that these cuts will worsen health inequalities in the constituency, where outcomes are already behind those in the leafier part of the county.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Secretary of State for Health to use his powers to reverse the continued scaling back of health care provision at Chase Farm Hospital and across the County of Hertfordshire and asks that he visits the constituency of Broxbourne at his earliest opportunity in order to address residents' concerns.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
