We are committed to working with our patients and the public as partners, and to putting patients and the public at the heart of all we do.

We want patients and local people to be directly involved in our work, helping us to shape local health services.

To make sure we are leading the way in providing mental health care and support for local people, we will be developing proposals to address the challenges we have with some of our buildings in East Sussex.

NHS East Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) would like to thank everyone who took part in the public consultation about the future of Eastbourne Station Health Centre.

All the responses from both phases will now be carefully analysed by Opinion Research Services Ltd (ORS), the social research organisation employed by the CCG to manage the consultation feedback and to faithfully report the outcomes. ORS will then produce a comprehensive, independent report of the findings for the CCG to consider before any decisions are made. This will be published on our website.

We will take our final proposals to our governing body and East Sussex Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee meetings in December.
