Radiotherapy – lives being lost

A letter from Margaret Ticehurst, Chair, Sussex Cancer Partnership Group: We were advised last week that the radiotherapy build at Eastbourne DGH had been stopped. Eastbourne and East Sussex residents continue to rely on outdated machines at Brighton that are well past their sell by date and break down continuously. Lives have been lost and will continue to be lost as many patients cannot face or cannot arrange transport to Brighton on a daily basis for six weeks and therefore refuse treatment.
