Welcome to my website

It is a thrill and honour to represent you in Parliament. During my campaign, I pledged to work for my constituents no matter how they voted and to always put local people first.

I'll fight tirelessly for a fair deal for all the Towns services, protect Eastbourne jobs and ensure that the interests of residents are always heard in Parliament. I profoundly believe that part of my job is to be, if necessary, unreasonable on behalf of Eastbourne and Willingdon!

Please remember - I work for you - so if there's anything I can ever do to help get in touch.

With best wishes

    Last week, Health Minister Norman Lamb MP announced an inquiry into deaths at Gosport War Memorial Hospital following years of campaigning by a local Eastbourne resident Mrs Gillian MacKenzie and Stephen Lloyd MP.

    Mrs MacKenzie first came to Stephen for assistance in 2009 before he was elected MP for Eastbourne and Willingdon. Her elderly mother had been admitted to Gosport in 1998, but unexpectedly passed away a short while later, leading to concerns that she had died from inappropriately administered medication. Subsequently to Mrs MacKenzie raising this with the MP, many others also came forward to express concerns about apparently premature deaths at the hospital, as well as concerns over a potential cover-up by the local NHS Trust and police.

    Hundreds of men in East Sussex are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year and many die from the disease.

    After a long campaign from Stephen Lloyd MP, East Sussex County Council have finally announced proposals to allow parking in loading zones within the town centre from 7pm through to the early morning.

    Stephen has been lobbying the County Council for years now to allow private vehicles to park in loading bays after 7pm. Previously he had managed to secure a more flexible remit for the loading bays in Seaside Road, allowing restaurant customers to park there in the evenings. Following this success, he called for other bays in the town centre to enjoy the same availability.

    I am sorry that I am unable to attend today's demonstration in support of the staff at the DGH. The proposed changes brought about by Senior Managers at East Sussex Healthcare Trust (EHST) have led to an uncertain future for many staff in Eastbourne.

    The Trust managers have spread services ever more thinly across East Sussex, dragging morale levels to new lows and forcing residents in East Sussex to travel longer distances to receive vital medical treatment that formerly could be given conveniently at our Eastbourne DGH. Grayson's Downgrade has resulted in uncertainty for patients, families, and of course, staff.

    Stephen Lloyd MP has been informed by a growing number of clinical staff members that the Day Surgery at Eastbourne DGH will be closing shortly, with many employees being told that their jobs will be moving to Hastings. This appears to be is in direct contradiction to the statement from just two weeks ago from the Trust that Day Surgery would remain at the DGH.

    Last week Paddy Ashdown visited Eastbourne to attend a fundraising dinner for MP Stephen Lloyd. The dinner, held at the Hydro Hotel, was one of Stephen's continuing 'Going4Gold' fundraising events, leading up to the General Election in 2015.

    Stephen said: "It was a pleasure to welcome Paddy to our lovely town. Such a tremendous turnout for the dinner showed that he is one of those individuals who generates interest across a wide spectrum of people. The topics we touched on as I interviewed him, included his stint with the SBS (Special Boat Service); his time as a Royal Marine in Belfast during the Troubles; what drove him to become involved in politics and, of particular interest to the guests, his views and experiences as High Representative of Bosnia-Herzegovina. I am sure I am not the only one who wondered if his particular skills may have been put to good use in Afghanistan?"
