NHS wastes millions on taxes for empty buildings

The NHS has spent £4 million on property taxes for empty buildings in the last three financial years, a TaxPayers' Alliance investigation has revealed. There are 77 vacant properties in the NHS estate which are valued at £40 million by NHS Property Services.


Speaking to MailOnline, which published the findings, our digital campaign manager Joe Ventre said:

"Taxpayers will be shocked at the number of empty buildings on the health service's books.

"Health bosses need to quickly sell these sites if they aren't going to be brought back into use."
