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.

Pain Management

The trust has an In-patient Pain Service (IPS) that helps patients recover from operations and helps control and reduce other non-surgical types of pain and discomfort.

The IPS team includes consultant anaesthetists specialising in in-patient pain management, clinical nurse specialists and trainee anaesthetists.

For children and young people, we also run the West Sussex Paediatric Chronic Pain Service.
