Liz Walke, chair of Save the DGH Campaign, said the survey added another piece to the jigsaw of catastrophic changes to maternity services in Eastbourne over recent years.
  • 1) 27% of mums who start labour in Eastbourne have to be transferred, usually to Hastings ( EBC/ONS survey, October 2017)
  • 2) travel time during labour of over 20 minutes increases the risk of stillbirths or neonatal deaths ( Netherlands Study, 2011/ EBC+ONS survey)
  • 3) Stillbirths in Eastbourne are twice the national average ( figures from East Sussex Healthcare Trust; follow-up FOIs submitted by Save The DGH)
