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.


St Richard’s Hospital is a busy DGH where trainees will get a good grounding in practical microbiology.  All trainees will spend time on the benches, the length of time depends on previous experience. There are daily ward rounds in ITU, for bacteraemias and hot cases. There is a weekly medical grand round which trainees are encouraged to attend, and can present if they wish. There are also MDTs in haematology, orthopaedic infections, diabetic foot infection and neonatal infections.
