News and events

As a member of Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust you can keep up to date with the work of the hospitals, our latest service developments and future plans through the regular events we hold and the newsletters we produce.


@WesternSussex is our new regular e-newsletter for members which is sent out monthly.


You don’t have to wait to receive @WesternSussex to keep up to date with what’s happening in your hospitals.

We regularly publish our own news stories on this website, on Facebook and through Twitter. You can also follow media coverage of the trust through our page on scoop.it.


The Trust holds both an annual members meeting and a series of regular information events throughout the year.

The Annual Members Meeting includes an update on innovation and performance in the hospitals, a clinical presentation and a marketplace of stalls showcasing the work of services and departments across the Trust. It also incorporates our AGM.

You are also very welcome to attend our Medicine for Members events, at which our clinicians present on a wide range of topics and take questions from the audience.

Topics covered have included bariatric (weight loss) surgery, ophthalmology (eye servcies), ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

Some of these are filmed and can be viewed on our YouTube channel www.youtube.com/user/WSHTatNHS/ 

Members can also join others at our quarterly Stakeholder Forum events, which we have been running for many years as a means of enabling patients, voluntary organisations, carers, faith groups and members of the public to learn more about our plans and priorities for our hospitals’ future and share their views on these.

Dates and details of Medicine for Members and Stakeholder Forum events will be publicised in the news section of this website and via social media.
