Hillbrow Health and Wellbeing

Hillbrow Health and Wellbeing at Hillbrow Sports Centre, Eastbourne

Wave Active and South Downs Health and Care (SDHC) have joined together to ensure business as usual at Hillbrow Sports Centre in Eastbourne from August 5, with the shared ambition of operating superb sports and leisure facilities for customers old and new and ultimately, connected healthcare provision under the same roof. 

Wave Active is a charity and social enterprise that currently operates sports and leisure centres on behalf of Lewes District Council and Eastbourne Borough Council providing services and opportunities that support individuals to gain, regain or maintain positive health, fitness and wellbeing, while SDHC is a social enterprise that is owned by a number of GP practices in the area.  We are very excited about the opportunity to bring together leisure and traditional NHS general practice in the heart of the community. In the longer term we will also offer private healthcare interventions in dedicated consulting rooms within Hillbrow.

Currently, our priority is working with the University of Brighton to ensure a smooth transition and keeping all centre members and neighbours in Meads up to date with the progress we are making.  We are grateful for everyone’s patience as we work through the details with the University. 

We thank the University of Brighton for supporting the principles underpinning our plans for Hillbrow and their constructive approach during negotiations. We are also grateful to Eastbourne Borough Council for its support and help in progressing our proposals.

In the coming months, we will organise open evenings for the Hillbrow members, customers, clubs and local residents to find out more about our longer-term plans. 

We will publicise these events on social media, where you can find us on Facebook and Instagram, as well as on the Wave Active website, where you will be able to sign up for updates, and the SDHC website at www.sdhc.org.uk/news

Keep an eye out in centre for upcoming events and updates too.

We look forward to meeting you all soon

The Wave Active Team
