Hastings Listening Tour

The Healthwatch East Sussex Listening Tour is a 3 year programme of engagement activity and we will be spending up to a month in your local area.

Our first listening tour began on Monday 9th October 2017 in Hastings and ran until Friday 27th October 2017.

This was an opportunity for local residents and organisations to be part of an exciting programme of activity, to capture local views and experiences and on the health and care services you and your family use.

Why did we do this?

You told us that:

  • We do not spend enough time in your local area
  • We need to listen to more people about the local issues they face
  • We need to maintain a presence in your community

Where did this this happen?

  • Camber
  • Fairlight
  • Hollington
  • Ore
  • Pett
  • Rye
  • Silverhill
  • St Leonards-on-Sea
  • Winchelsea
