Improving mental health services in East Sussex

Following approval from the Joint Committee of the NHS Sussex CCGs and the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Board of Directors, the East Sussex Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (HOSC) today (Thursday 2 December) endorsed our proposal to move mental health inpatient services at the Department of Psychiatry in Eastbourne to a new hospital on a site in Bexhill.

This was the final step in endorsing our proposals, following recent approval by the relevant governing bodies, and we can now start the implementation phase. The new hospital will be built on a site in Mount View Street, North East Bexhill, and will be completed by March 2024, at a cost of £46.7 million.
