This briefing by the New Economics Foundation (NEF) looks specifically at the NHS sites which have been sold so far under the Government’s public land sale programme.
These include hospitals, community health centres, and other health service infrastructure, which have been identified as surplus by the NHS. We compare the homes planned on these sites to the average wages of NHS key workers.
Their analysis reveals that the sale of NHS land is fundamentally failing to produce the affordable homes needed, and is in fact exacerbating the deep affordability crisis across the UK.
