EASTBOURNE MP Caroline Ansell has praised local hospital staff after a family emergency.

She said: “I would like to say a particular personal ‘Thank You’ to our NHS stars having spent last weekend in their expert care with my youngest son. 

“A&E, radiology, orthopedic teams and all the support staff were there for us in our hour of need and I am so grateful for that.”   

The DGH is obviously very busy but the clear message from the NHS is to use it if required.
