Under the local arrangements for managing National Health Service estate, the disposal of surplus land and buildings are decisions that are taken locally rather than nationally. The planned value of income such disposals for non-foundation trusts during this financial year and next is estimated to be £200 million per annum. Equivalent data for foundation trusts are not available.
