"Thank you"

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital

At a time when all we hear is bad press about the NHS and the DGH locally I would like to publicly thank the ambulance crew and staff in the resuscitation unit who fought so hard to save my partner on 9 June 2014. Sadly, it was not to be and Keith passed away but I couldn't have asked for any more from the people who did all they could for him. Special thanks to the paramedic and the nurse who sat with me in the relatives room. It breaks my heart to see our hospital being pulled apart department by department and the services that are needed locally moved out of town.
