Protesters oppose the sale of mental health hospital land

Haringey Independent: Protesters oppose the sale of mental health hospital land Protesters oppose the sale of mental health hospital land

Protesters unhappy with the sale of land around St Ann’s Hospital gathered outside a consultation meeting last night.

Members of Haringey Needs St Ann’s Hospital (HNSAH) waved placards outside a meeting at Chestnuts Community Centre in St Ann’s Road.

The hospital site is currently owned by Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust (BEHMHT), which wants to gain planning permission to sell two thirds of the land to a housing developer.

But campaigners say new facilities are desperately needed, and that mental health provision must be increased.

They claim the trust has not carried out a proper assessment of the area’s healthcare needs, and are calling on BEHMHT to expand the hospital instead of selling the land.
