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.

Diabetes and Endocrinology

There are specialist diabetes centres at both St Richard’s and Worthing Hospitals, where consultant-led services offer a full range of treatments and investigations for people with diabetes and diabetes-related illnesses.

We help patients diagnosed as having diabetes through the subsequent process of assessment, education, treatment and stabilisation to extend their freedom from long-term complications.

Our diabetes specialist nurses also run educational group sessions to help patients transfer from insulin tablets to injections they can give themselves.
