A major public meeting is being held on the future use of a former hospital aftercare building in Norfolk. 

Benjamin Court reablement service, in Cromer, controversially closed in June last year. 

The centre provided short-stay care beds for people well enough to be discharged from hospital but not well enough to return home.

But Norfolk County Council closed the building as part of wider plans to offer a similar care service at people’s homes instead.

Now, a public meeting is taking place at North Norfolk District Council's headquarters, in Holt Road, Cromer, on May 30, from 6pm to 7.30pm.

The meeting is ticketed, which must be booked in advance by visiting www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/benjamin-court-public-meeting-tickets-902211096677

Benjamin Court consists of two buildings owned by NHS Property Services, joined together by a corridor. 

One of the buildings is largely empty, which is the building NHS Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Board (ICB) and Health Watch Norfolk are asking for people's views on how it could be used. 

The other building is let exclusively to Broadland Housing Group, which is not set to change.

A further drop-in session has also been announced at the Main Hall at North Walsham Community Centre on May 21, from 1pm to 3pm.
