National emergency care director Sir George Alberti is expected to call today for the closure of accident and emergency and maternity services at Chase Farm Hospital in Enfield, north London.

This is despite a campaign by junior Home Office minister Joan Ryan to retain services at the hospital, which is based in her Enfield North constituency.
