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.

Why choose us

We understand that coming into hospital can be a daunting experience and that having a say in your care and treatment is important to you.

Between our two private suites, we have 25 private, ensuite rooms and a further ten beds in small, private shared bays, all within exceptional NHS hospitals.


Our 50 specialist consultants will work closely with you before, during and after your stay, to ensure the highest standards of care, the best ongoing support and the speediest of recoveries.


Our staff are on hand 24/7 to help make your stay as comfortable as possible.


Our private patients suites are within established, high-performing NHS hospitals, giving you access to the highest quality care, diagnostic imaging and treatment.


If you live in Sussex, choosing private care in your local hospital makes it easier to get here and get home, and for your loved ones to visit you.


All the money generated by our private patients’ suites is reinvested into the hospitals to help us continue to provide the highest standards of care for all our patients.
