A HEALTH watchdog will be visiting the Conquest Hospital later this year.

The new chief inspector of hospitals, Sir Mike Richards, from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has announced that East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, which runs the hospital on The Ridge, together with Eastbourne’s DGH, will come under scrutiny from his team in September.
