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.


Orthogeriatrics is the care of elderly orthopaedic inpatients, most commonly following a fractured hip.

Orthogeriatricians improve outcomes for hip fracture patients by caring for patients alongside orthopaedic surgeons and with the support of a specialist multidisciplinary team.
