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.

Our patients and staff benefit enormously from the support of our Love Your Hospital charity and our three Friends organisations, who coordinate appeals and activities, manage funds and approve donations for specific purposes.

Love Your Hospital charity

Love Your Hospital charity logoThe Love Your Hospital charity exists to raise money for Western Sussex Hospitals to use to improve facilities, services and patient care.

The charity encompasses various funds which raise money for the organisation as a whole but also for the individual hospital sites. This enables our loyal donors to give to their specific hospital or to the organisation as a whole.

Each of the wards has its own fund that grateful patients and families can donate to as well.

Friends of the hospitals

Each of our three hospitals is fortunate to have its own Friends organisations, which have been raising money for the benefit of patients for more than 60 years apiece.

The Friends are all run by independent committees of trustees, who co-ordinate activities, manage funds and approve specific donations. There are shops and cafes run by the Friends at all three hospitals.

There are many ways in which you can be a friend to our Friend, whether it be helping in a shop, with fundraising or simply by becoming a member or making a donation.
