Thanks to advances in medicine and surgical techniques; undergoing an operation no longer means having to stay in hospital for days or even weeks.
Day surgery units (DSUs) like the Sussex Surgical Centre at Southlands Hospital and the Chichester Treatment Centre at St Richard’s Hospital are now commonplace and enable patients to receive the treatment they need more quickly and conveniently.
Our DSUs are amongst the most advanced in the country and treat more than 300 people each week in a wide range of specialities including orthopaedics; gynaecology; urology and maxillo-facial and general surgery.
We will do all we can to make your stay with us as easy and as comfortable as possible. The following pages will give you more information about what to expect.
