Residents are being urged to join a protest march on Saturday, April 13, calling for improved health services in Seaford.
It is being organised by Seaford councillor Sam Adeniji and has the backing of the town’s MP Norman Baker, who plans to lead the march.
This follows a series of blows dealt to health services in the town, including the lack of outpatients services, downgrading Eastbourne Hospital and the closure of Seaford Day Hospital. The march will start at 11am at the War Memorial in Seaford and then to Broad Street, Sutton Road and on to Seaford Day Hospital where protesters will gather in the car park for speeches by Mr Baker, a Save the DGH spokesperson and Ralph Taylor form Seaford health group CASH.
Cllr Adeniji said: “Despite the campaign for improved health services in Seaford and for more outpatient services to be provided locally, we are having more services taken away and provided further way from Seaford.”
