Two large parts of Queen Mary’s Hospital in Sidcup are going to be sold off, it has emerged.

Subject to planning approval by Bexley Council, 3.1 acres will be sold to development a residential nursing home.

Another 16.8 acre site containing a Hyde Housing residential development is likely to be sold to the housing association.

Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust took over the hospital after the dissolution of South London Healthcare Trust on October 1.

A spokesman for Oxleas said the proposed sale was part of trust special administrator Matthew Kershaw’s original proposal to split up SLHT.

He added: “We are investing up to £30 million over the next five years to ensure the hospital has a bright and sustainable future.

“This is far more than the receipts of the land sales and we will be building new facilities including a radiotherapy unit.

“We are not currently marketing any further areas of the site for sale and have no plans to do so.”
