The Eastbourne Health Improvement Network will help staff and volunteers and the wider public health workforce to develop and support their knowledge and understanding of health improvement by exploring a specific theme at each network meeting.

You, and/or colleagues from your organisation, are invited to attend the first Eastbourne Health Improvement Network meeting, which will be themed on tobacco control and stop smoking services.

  • Would you like to know more about tobacco control and stop smoking services in Eastbourne?


  • Are you interested in finding out how you can help the residents of Eastbourne to stop smoking?


  • Do you want to work with other local organisations to identify and explore opportunities to work together to reduce smoking and the use of illegal and illicit tobacco in Eastbourne?



This is an exciting opportunity to meet other practitioners, learn more about local activities and agree a way forward so that  we can work together to reduce smoking and the use of illegal and illicit tobacco, improve the health and reduce health inequalities of the residents of Eastbourne.


The first Eastbourne Health Improvement Network  meeting will take place on Thursday 26th June 2014 at 14:00 at Eastbourne Town Hall, Grove Road, Eastbourne, BN21 4UG. There will be an opportunity to learn about local projects, the support available to you and for you to use some health promotion resources.


Please let Barbara Pratt know if you will be attending or if your organisation will be represented, by emailing by 20th June  2014.


We look forward to meeting you on 26th June.

In July 2013 11 organisations wrote a response to the East Sussex Hospital Trust (ESHT) consultation on their draft patient experience strategy. The report looked at the actual experience of patients in hospital, how it could be improved and what the Third Sector could do to help ESHT achieve those improvements. No response has yet been received from ESHT. To read a copy of the report click here.
