A group campaigning against plans to sell of land around St Ann’s Hospital will stage another protest.

Haringey Needs St Ann’s Hospital (HaNSAH) will gather outside the Civic Centre in Wood Green from 7pm.

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.

Rode Wells, a spokesman for the group, said tonight’s protest aimed to show councillors that there is still anger surrounding the plans.
