A list of options to decide the future of a former hospital site in Lowestoft will be revealed later this month.

The last two out-patient services at Lowestoft Hospital moved out in December last year after the site was rendered unsuitable due to a burst water main.

Since then, the building, which has operated from Tennyson Road since 1926, has been boarded-up and closed to the public.

But now, a list of options for the site's future will be presented to the James Paget University Hospital's (JPUH) board of directors on June 30.

JPUH's director of finance, Mark Flynn, said: 'The last two out-patient services based at the old Lowestoft Hospital site moved to other locations in the community at the end of last year as the building was no longer suitable.

'Since then, the James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been working up options for the future of the site as part of its overall estates strategy.
