A wish list of healthcare provision has been drawn up by town leaders in Swaffham.
Key stakeholders were brought together to work on a plan for what could be provided in the town in a new hospital, which could be built on some town allotments.
MP Christopher Fraser, Norfolk Primary Care Trust, Swaffham Town Council and Swaffham Hospital League of Friends have been meeting to work out what could be provided in the town.
A report is due to be submitted to the PCT by the group.

And that the PCT would now need time to carry out feasibility studies. These would then be brought forward for further discussion.
Earlier this year the town council was given the go ahead by the government to sell off an area of allotments.
It was hoped this will raise £6million towards town funds. This would be reduced if the PCT takes up an offer to use the land for a new community hospital.
