She said: “The overall picture is now becoming clear and this is exactly what we warned would happen. The lives of mothers and babies are being put at risk by not having consultant-led maternity services in Eastbourne.
“When will the voices of the people of Eastbourne be heard? What more evidence do the people in high office need to be persuaded that urgent action MUST be taken immediately?”
“We call on Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to review all the evidence and establish a time-table to bring back consultant-led maternity services to Eastbourne DGH.”
