The Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) at Lewes Victoria Hospital is to undergo major improvement works to upgrade it to an Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC) as part of ongoing efforts to support the local healthcare system, and free up emergency care for those who need it most.
The improvement work started on 6 November 2019 and is expected to be completed by April 2020.
