Troubled NHS Trust's sites 'should be sold'

Wed 31st October 2012, 9:45 am

Department of Health official Matthew Kershaw has indicated that certain sites owned by a financially troubled NHS Trust should be sold off.

The South London Healthcare Trust was put into administration in July 2012.

On October 29 a draft report by trust special administrator Kershaw recommended that Queen Mary's Hospital in Sidcup be transformed into a community health centre, with underused buildings being sold off.

Kershaw also suggests merging Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich with Lewisham NHS Trust and reducing activities at the hospital.

Sites at both Queen Mary's Hospital and Queen Elizabeth's Hospital are listed on the Sitematch London website.
