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.

Infection prevention and control

We take cleanliness and infection control very seriously and work closely with the Trust’s infection prevention and control team. We continually monitor our clinical practice and our outcomes are excellent.

You will be screened for MRSA before you are admitted or within 24 hours of admission in line with our infection control policy. This policy helps us to protect you and others by managing infection. The MRSA screening test is simple and non-invasive.
