East Sussex NHS concerns after boy's ambulance wait

Changes to hospital services in East Sussex are under fresh scrutiny after a nine-year-old boy was left waiting in a busy recovery unit for eight hours through the night.

Douglas Potter had to be transferred to Conquest Hospital in Hastings because Eastbourne's children's ward is closed overnight, under a temporary downgrade of maternity and paediatric care.

Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd said he was "tremendously worried".
