Staff accommodation: Chichester

Aberdare Close, Chichester

Staff accommodation at St Richard’s Hospital is available on-site at Aberdare Close. This comprises five terraced houses, two blocks of single rooms and 12 two-bedroom flats.

The hospital aims to offer members of staff an opportunity to rent furnished accommodation on-site by means of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement.

Aberdare Close flats

This is particularly useful to members of staff who are new to the area or those on rotation who need accommodation for the period in which they will be working at the hospital. However; any member of staff is welcome to apply.

We allocate a small number of rooms on a nightly basis for short-term stays including locum and agency staff, interviewees and visitors to the Trust.

Doctors' Mess

As well as the residences in Aberdare Close, the accommodation team also manages the Doctors’ Mess and The Leslie Goldsmith Centre, which is used by medical students.

Please note that accommodation is allocated according to availability and it is advisable to make all enquires as early as possible.
