If you have a serious injury or need urgent medical treatment, you may need to come into one of the two accident and emergency (A&E) departments we run at Western Sussex Hospitals in Worthing and Chichester.
You can help our busy A&E staff by considering whether your need for treatment really is urgent and whether it would be more appropriate for you to see your General Practitioner (GP), call the NHS 111 service for advice (open 24 hours) or visit a minor injuries unit rather than come into A&E.
More information to help you choose the right type of urgent care is available at www.nhs.uk.
You can download the leaflet Save A&E for Saving Lives
Or find out about other emergency helplines, urgent care and crisis services in our area
There are no A&E facilities at Southlands Hospital in Shoreham-by-Sea.
