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.

Website accessibility: ReciteMe

Recite Me is a special piece of software that allows you to make the Western Sussex Hospitals website easier to use, read and understand.

You can make text bigger, translate it into another language, or even have it read to you out loud.

You can change colours, look up the meaning of words and remove images to view pages in text-only mode.

Just click on the ReciteMe logo in the bottom right of the screen to make the toolbar appear at the top:
