Alongside the review on the impact of the cost of living for nurses committed to in the Our Vision for London NHS plan, will you publish detailed information on surplus NHS land, including that currently for sale?

City Hall does not have any direct powers or responsibility for nurse recruitment and retention or for NHS land. The GLA continues to work with NHS and other partners to deliver the shared London Health and Care Vision and The London Plan.

Data relating to surplus NHS land is held by the Department of Health and Social Care and treated as commercially sensitive. NHS Digital publishes an annual surplus land return based on data collected from NHS Trusts. In line with NHS EstateCode, individual NHS organisations should register land declared as surplus on the Electronic Property Information Mapping Service (EPIMs) giving other public sector organisations the opportunity to express an interest prior to sites being disposed of on the open market.  The GLA is not in a position to publish this information.
