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.

These pages are still being developed as part of our new maternity website so do check back with us as we add more information about what happens after your baby is born and what you can expect in your first days and weeks at home together.

In the meantime, you can get all the information and advice you need through Family Assist, a great resource for new parents, their families and friends to help and support them as their babies develop.

Family Assist is managed by Western Sussex Hospitals and our partners at Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust and West Sussex County Council.
