Plans to extend Eastbourne District General Hospital have been approved.

The new three-storey building, designed by Gilling Dod Architects, will house operating theatres and a 24-bed hospital ward, replacing a former ward and staff car park.

The facility will help to reduce waiting lists for elective care by increasing the number of patients who can be seen each day.

Work will begin shortly on the site following approval from Eastbourne Borough Council’s planning committee.

The building in Kings Drive will be linked to the existing hospital and will have its own separate entrance.
