VIDEO: Save the DGH march

Around a thousand people joined campaigners to fight the downgrading of services at the DGH this morning (Saturday).

The old, the young, mums-to-be and families joined Save the DGH campaign chairman Liz Walke and her team and the town’s MP Stephen Lloyd to send a defiant message to the trust that runs the hospital, ‘enough is enough’.

The move comes four months after the Eastbourne hospital become a stand alone midwifery-led maternity unit and the changes also mean that children are no longer able to stay overnight at the DGH Friston Ward.
