Western Sussex Hospitals have joined up with Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals to form a new NHS Foundation Trust for our area: University Hospitals Sussex.

You can keep using this website for information about St Richard’s, Worthing and Southlands hospitals but for our other sites and to find out more about the new trust please visit www.uhsussex.nhs.uk.


car park

Southlands Hospital has nearly 200 car parking spaces for patients and staff, new disabled bays, motorcycle parking and a drop-off and pick-up point outside the entrance of our state-of-the-art ophthalmology unit, Western Sussex Eye Care | Southlands.

The car park is pay and display for all visitors. Disabled parking is free within disabled marked bays with a valid blue badge on display

Parking charges are as follows:

  • Up to 1 hour: £1.30
  • Up to 2 hours: £2.60
  • Up to 3 hours: £3.50
  • Up to 4 to 24 hours: £4.70

  • The payment machines accept coins, notes and debit/credit cards.

Please follow the signs for the patient and public car park as other areas on the site are reserved for staff permit holders. Street parking in the area is very limited.

Electric vehicle charging points are not yet available.

Parking Charge Notices

Please look out for the signs in our car parks and on roadways around the hospital which explain where you can and cannot park. Parking Charge Notices (PCN) may be issued against vehicles failing to comply – for example, parking in hatched areas, out of a bay or in a manner that causes an obstruction.

If you are issued with a PCN, you can appeal against it at www.ukpcappeals.co.uk/options. To make an appeal, you will need your vehicle registration and the PCN reference number (you can find this at the top of the PCN notice).

Please note: this procedure is only for appealing Parking Charge Notices. If you have any concerns about car parking fees or problems with payments, please speak to a car park warden or contact the trust on the telephone number below.

For more information about car parking at Southlands Hospital please telephone 01903 285222 ext 83508.
