THE Eastbourne Walk In Centre at the railway station WILL close.

Health chiefs will meet on Wednesday to make a final decision.

The papers have just been released and, as predicted, the recommendation is closure.

But that will only happen once the new Victoria Medical Centre is up and running and has opened a branch in the town centre.

There will also be drop-in clinics (at least weekly) in the town centre to meet the medical and nursing needs of rough sleepers and homeless patients.

When Victoria Medical Centre opens in Spring 2021, this development will create a facility that can cater for 30,000 patients. The three practices have an existing combined registered patient list of 23,265, meaning there is capacity to welcome 6,000 more new patients.
