Yesterday, we were privilege to welcome HRH Sophie, the Countess of Wessex at Brighton City Airport. HRH Sophie attended the openings of three important buildings in Shoreham, Chichester and Crawley.
Firstly, HRH Sophie visited a new eye care unit at Southlands Hospital in Shoreham. The Countess toured the new facility, meeting patients and staff. After, she unveiled a commemorative plaque and declared the new unit officially open.
The Countess then visited Sage House in Tangmere. Dementia Support is a young, local charity which has created a unique hub – Sage House, the first of its kind in the UK, which brings all dementia services under one roof for people living with dementia, their families and carers.
Lastly, the Countess visited Crawley to open South East Coast Ambulance Service’s new emergency operations centre and headquarters.
SECAmb Chief Executive Daren Mochrie said: “I’m delighted that our new EOC and HQ will be officially opened by HRH The Countess of Wessex and I am looking forward to showing her the EOC and introducing her to staff”.
After, HRH Sophie arrived back at Brighton City Airport to depart. She arrived in the Royal Sikorsky S-76C. Her next engagement will be attending the Royal Wedding next week.
