Another hospital needed in Littlehampton

As I worked in Littlehampton Hospital, I get asked if there will ever be a new one built. The answer is ‘no’, as the money went to two different hospitals.

It was always a dream to have the two houses that belonged to the hospital knocked down and a bigger hospital built right along to the pavement. But the houses were sold and flats built. What a shame that was.

He had plans drawn up but they were turned down. What a wonderful boss he was.

We need a hospital but I can’t see us ever getting one.

Also, the people of the town would like to know where all the X-ray equipment has gone that we all helped pay for. It is still a mystery to me after all these years.

The council seems to spend our money on other things not so important. But not what our town needs.
