More housing on Littlehampton Waitrose site will put even more pressure on strained medical services

So plans for the old Waitrose site mean yet more retail property going for housing – after all the flats around the station, the old market site, Ockendens, The Globe and General Henry pubs, the list goes on and on.

Since the Arun surgery closed I have joined Westcourt, which is now due to merge with another surgery, with yet another surgery closing in Rustington.

I am on and eight-week waiting list for physiotherapy and Littlehampton Hospital is a pipe dream.

The future looks very bleak.
