EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell has praised staff at A&E in the DGH after she fell and broke fingers last week.

“This week I wrote my weekly Herald Column from the fracture clinic at the DGH – not even broken bones can keep me away from my work representing our town. I took a tumble last week and managed to break fingers; my wedding ring had to be cut off too but luckily no permanent damage.  

“A huge thank you to those who came over to offer their help on the scene and the brilliant team at A&E who did a great job patching me up.  I am so grateful to our NHS and to its host of heroes who work so hard to look after us.  

Please do keep sending me your Eastbourne nominations for the parliamentary NHS awards which close on April 6th.”
