Thousands march against Eastbourne and Hastings NHS cuts
Thousands of people marched against plans to cut health services in Eastbourne and Hastings.
They are opposed to proposals from East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs Eastbourne District General Hospital and Conquest Hospital in St Leonards, to centralise stroke care, emergency orthopaedics and emergency surgery at a single hospital.
Demonstrators marched along Eastbourne seafront the Redoubt to Wish Tower on Saturday morning.
Speakers included the town’s MP, Stephen Lloyd and Lewes MP Norman Baker.
Protest organiser Liz Walke, from Save the DGH, said: “It went really well.
“It is so important that we keep services local and people have said it resoundingly in their thousands today.”
