We will try to help and can also pass your request on to our contacts at Enfield Council. They are keen to make the Local Offer site as user-friendly and helpful to parents as possible. Feel free to email any comments or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will pass these on.
If you would like to provide feedback on NHS services you have received, then please feel free to submit a review via Healthwatch Enfield’s website. It may not feel like it sometimes, but your voice matters! https://healthwatchenfield.co.uk/services/?sfilter=specialist-children-s-services
