Lewes Lib Dems release:

Liberal Democrat District Councillors in Seaford have written to Maria Caulfield MP, asking for clarity on the status of plans for new health hubs in Seaford. The councillors expressed concern that despite the MP's recent leaflet stating that plans were in place for a new medical hub, there was no evidence of it.

In the letter, the councillors said that delay in urgently needed health facilities fell far short of what local people had told them they needed. They also highlighted the desperate need for more local health facilities, pointing out that people aged over 75 and those who are clinically extremely vulnerable have been unable to access Covid boosters in Seaford.

The councillors also reiterated their support for the redevelopment of Seaford Medical Practice, including the car park behind the practice on Richmond Road, to provide adequate space for local GP facilities.

James MacCleary, (pictured right), parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Democrats in Lewes constituency said: "It is unacceptable that people in Seaford are unable to access the healthcare they need, and we call on the government to take urgent action to support the local NHS. Our team in Seaford will keep pushing to put the NHS first."

Recently elected district councillor for Seaford Central, Freddie Hoareau, (pictured left), added: "We heard some heartbreaking stories of people affected by the crisis in our NHS during our election campaigns, and we look forward to receiving some clarity on the local situation. NHS staff work so hard, and with our local MP as a health minister, they really need more support."
