Local MP Alan Mak has called on NHS Property Services to halt their sale of Emsworth's Victoria Cottage Hospital.
He said that he was not given advance notification that the sale process had started, and has responded immediately by writing to the Chief Executive of NHSPS calling for the sale process to be halted to allow community groups to engage with the process.
Alan will be organising a roundtable meeting in Emsworth for NHS officials to meet community representatives, and will keep residents updated via his website.
Alan Mak said: “I didn’t receive advance notification about this disappointing decision and found out via social media. I have responded immediately by calling on NHS Property Services to withdraw the site from the market. This freeze will give community groups time to engage with the process, and I’ve asked the NHS to attend a roundtable meeting I’m organising in Emsworth to listen to views from the community.”
