Parts of the Hurst Road site are being sold, with the understanding that land is retained for use as a response post for crews. Further sites for additional response posts, based on patient demand, will also be explored.
For many staff, it is with obvious sadness that this move has taken place, as many members of staff have worked out of Horsham for several decades; serving the community in which they live.
The move is part of a service wide program designed to improve efficiency, by ensuring ambulances are fully stocked, cleaned and checked, prior to crews starting their shifts. The new site also includes the staff from Crawley, East Grinstead and Horley.
