Suspension of birth notification information for patients


Following the announcement of a nationwide lockdown, the Registry Offices in Camden, Islington, Haringey, Enfield and Barnet have suspended Birth registrations. The 42-day deadline for registration no longer applies.  Registrations will start again once the pandemic is over.
