The NHS Norfolk Action Group (NHS NAG) will hold a protest against the sale of health service land this weekend.

On Saturday, the group will be at Kelling Hospital and in Holt to demonstrate against the Naylor Review, where surplus land which could potentially be sold was identified.

They will start at Kelling Hospital at 11am before moving to the war memorial, in Holt, at noon.

NHS NAG want to see buildings and land reevaluated as to how they could be used by the NHS rather than being sold off. They believe “each sale means more publicly-owned assets are being privatised”.

They are also calling for a full consultation with the public and health professionals, and for councillors and MPs to use their influence to prevent changes to NHS provision.

The protest is the latest in a series of demonstrations around the county.
