Our hospitals are generally well served by public transport.
Unfortunately we are unable to provide transport home for most patients. If you have someone who can help collect you from hospital, we can help you contact them when we are close to discharging you home.
If you want to order a taxi there is a free phone in the Emergency Department waiting area in the Urgent Care Centre at RSCH, Brighton and we can provide you with local taxi numbers at PRH, Haywards Heath.
The non-emergency patient transport service NEPTS is only available for patients who are unable (for medical reasons) to use private or public transport services for their journey to and/or from our hospitals. A clinical need for treatment does not necessarily imply a medical need for transport. This service is only available for patients registered with a GP in Sussex.
It is available for journeys
It is not available out of hours and as such we may not be able to get you home at these times and you may need to stay in hospital till the following morning.
