Community Services in Enfield
Our community health service in Enfield provides treatment and support for people with physical healthcare problems in a community setting.
Core services include community nurses and health visitors. Specialist services also include podiatry, speech and language therapy, school nursing, and health promotion.
Services treat people in their own homes, or close to home, where they will be more comfortable and can continue to live independently. We aim, where possible, to avoid admission into hospital and enable quicker recovery periods.
