Save Chase Farm was a local British political party that stood against the closure of departments of Chase Farm Hospital, Enfield.

Save Chase Farm's leaders were Catherine Wilkinson and Kieron McGregor.[1] They were both elected as local councillors to Enfield Council in May 2006.[2] The party fielded nine candidates in the 2006 local council election. In the May 2010 elections both Wilkinson and McGregor stood again but both lost their seats to the Conservatives.[3] As a political party, they disbanded after the 2010 election but continued to campaign against the closure of the maternity and A&E units of the hospital.[4] They persuaded the council to obtain a Judicial review of the closure.[5] This was unsuccessful; the units closed and redevelopment of the hospital now continues under the administration of the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.
