THE EMERGENCY department at the DGH has won an award for its services to the local community.

Staff from the department were presented with an Emergency Service Award at a ceremony run by the Diner’s Choice Magazine. The awards were given on behalf of local businesses in Eastbourne and surrounding areas in appreciation of the work of the emergency services.

Michele Elphick, who manages the department, and her colleague Fiona Pearson collected the award from Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd on behalf of the rest of their team.

Michele said, “We were delighted to be given this award. It reflects the hard work and commitment of all the staff in the Emergency Department. Every one of us works very hard to provide the best possible care for our local community.”
