09 January 2018
Nationally, 59 sites have been reported sold by the NHS as part of the Government’s public land sale programme. 80% of the homes being built on NHS land are for market sale, the vast majority of which are out of reach for NHS key workers. The other 20% of proposed houses are classified as ‘affordable’ but only half of these are for genuinely affordable social rent. See full story.
