Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals (BSUH) is transforming
We want to make our hospitals and our services the best that they can be for patients from across Sussex and the South East of England. Through our 3Ts programme we are planning to modernise the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, develop and expand the services we provide for the most seriously ill and injured patients, and strengthen our role as the regional teaching hospital. The five main elements of our 3Ts programme are set out below.
Working With The Trust Development Authority and The Treasury
Following on from the unanimous approval of our planning application by Brighton & Hove City Council in January 2012, the Outline Business Case has been passed to the Trust Development Authority and The Treasury. The 3Ts Redevelopment Team are working closely with them to make sure they have all the information they need to release the funding for the programme as soon as possible.
The need for redevelopment and expansion

The main buildings at the front of the County Hospital were built nearly 200 years ago. The wards are cramped, the other clinical and public areas are inadequate and there is an overwhelming need to replace them with modern facilities which are welcoming, accessible and purpose-built for the provision of 21st century healthcare.
The Hurstwood Park Regional Centre for Neurosciences is being relocated from the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath to Brighton. This will place neurosciences alongside our other key emergency services, enabling the County to become the Major Trauma Centre for Sussex and the South East of England and provide more co-ordinated treatment, on one site, for our most seriously ill and injured patients.
We want to expand the Sussex Cancer Centre including the development of a new Chemotherapy Day Unit, increasing the radiotherapy service and doubling the number of beds on the Oncology Ward.
BSUH is the major trauma centre for the Sussex network using acute facilities at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton. The redevelopment will improve trauma facilites on site and build a landing pad for the Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance.
The redevelopment will mean that within the hospital we can provide state-of-the-art teaching, training and research facilities for our Medical School and local Universities.
