Long-awaited cancer unit finally becomes a reality



Have your say

Artist’s impressions of the new £1.7 million Pevensey Unit at Eastbourne DGH have been released showing a new unit twice the size with more facilities offering patients greater privacy and dignity in a state-of-the-art environment.

The plans will create a new oncology suite with an expanded day unit offering new treatment facilities, providing a high quality patient experience. The new in-patient suite will include new side rooms with en-suite facilities offering greater privacy and dignity, new spacious light and airy three bedded bays, an adolescent room along with more social space for patients and staff. The new unit will encompass the existing footprint of Pevensey Ward and the footprint of Wilmington Ward, therefore doubling it in size.

Overall, the new unit has more bedrooms and en-suite facilities, more treatment areas, more space and more toilets. Detailed working drawings are being developed with a view to starting building works later this year.
