Inspectors made an unannounced inspection of the hospital on The Ridge, together with its sister site, Eastbourne DGH, yesterday (Thursday) and on Wednesday.  The health watchdog branded East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs both hospitals, as ‘inadequate’. An inspection took place in September last year before the CQC returned this week to assess the progress the trust had made addressing concerns raised. The CQC said in most cases, a rating of ‘inadequate’ would lead to the Chief Inspector of Hospitals recommending that the trust be put in special measures.
