Eastbourne paediatric team wins Hero of the Month award

The paediatric team at Eastbourne DGH has won the NHS trust’s Hero of the Month award.

Ward clerk Angela Waters, who nominated the team, said, “The paediatric team of matron, nurses, doctors, health care assistants and housekeepers are an amazing team to work with, they are not just work colleagues they are my second family.

“The last year and a half has been a real challenge to us all after having to move location and they have given great support to the whole team when we have had a wobble.
