About us

Our private patients units are situated in Worthing Hospital and St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester, and are available for patients who want to pay for their own care or who have private medical insurance.

Based within the high-achieving Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the Downlands Suite in Worthing Hospital and the Chichester Suite at St Richard’s Hospital, Chichester, offer you the best of both worlds.

The private suites combine the dedicated care, added privacy and “hotel style” service you would expect from a private hospital with the specialist interventions, state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging facilities and round-the-clock, acute hospital services available 365 days a year in the NHS Trust.

Our specialist consultants are based at the hospitals and have developed highly-skilled teams, providing you with the highest levels of treatment and care.

The private patient units work alongside and build upon the excellent, patient-focused healthcare existing already within the Trust.

As part of the Care Quality Commission’s ‘intelligent monitoring’ classification, the Trust is in the highest-performing band judged to offer the “best & safest care” for patients.
