ⓘ Barnet and Chase Farm NHS Hospitals Trust

Barnet and Chase Farm NHS Hospitals Trust was a NHS hospital trust of the National Health Service in England, responsible for Barnet Hospital and Chase Farm Hospital, both of which are in North London. On 1 July 2014 Barnet and Chase Farm NHS Foundation Trust became part of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust, which now comprises Barnet Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital.

The trust was formed in 1999, at a time when many hospitals were merged for administrative and managerial reasons, in an attempt to create an organization with sufficient critical mass to deal with a wide range of services, the patient. However rationalisation of services between the hospitals has been slow, partly due to the structure of PFI hospitals Barnet, and partly because of the reluctance of the local population and politicians to countenance the concentration of specific services in only one place.

The hospital staff sites later made another music video – Mariah Carey Tribute entitled I dont want a Christmas with flu – to promote the use of flu vaccinations. It was released on YouTube in November 2013, and also became a minor viral hit, with enthusiasm for both the fan page Careys Mariah on Facebook and even in the newspaper "Metro".
