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

Worthing Hospital’s town centre location and the operation of a residents’ parking scheme in the surrounding streets means car parking space is very limited.

The main hospital car park is open 24 hours a day 7 days a week (Inc. bank holidays) and has spaces reserved for blue badge holders.

There is a pay and display car park located at the rear of the site for people visiting the breast screening unit.

Please arrive in plenty of time so you do not miss your appointment, but if you are parking on or around the hospital site, please allow an extra 30 minutes as parking is limited.

Car parking charges are as follows:


  • Up to 15 minutes free
  • Up to 1 hour: £1.30
  • Up to 2 hours: £2.30
  • Up to 3 hours: £3.50
  • Up to 4 hours: £4.70
  • Up to 6 hours: £5.90
  • Up to 24 hours: £7.60

Subsequent hours are accrued over the stay period


  • Overnight (10pm-7am): £2.00
  • Motorcycles pay a flat day rate of £1
  • Seven day ticket for patients and visitors: £22.00
  • Lost ticket charge: £10.00


You will receive a ticket at the barrier on entry and should pay at the pay station before returning to your car. The ticket returned to you at the pay station can then be used to open the exit barrier on leaving.

Car park pay stations accept cash, notes and debit/credit cards, give change and have an intercom if you need help.

You can park in the main car park for up to 15 minutes for free.

Blue badge holders have access to dedicated spaces opposite the main public car park. Fees do not apply in disabled bays and users do not require a ticket to park – but they must ensure their valid European Blue badge is clearly on display.

A council-run pay-and-display car park is also available in Beach House Park, on the opposite side of Lyndhurst Road to the hospital.

Bicycle parking facilities are available to the south/east of the main entrance, outside the Accident & Emergency department to the west of the main entrance and also by the North Wing.

Motorcycle parking is also available outside A&E.  

Electric vehicle charging points are not yet available to the public.

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.
