About us

We are part of Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust‘s women’s services directorate.

Our staff provide a safe, high-quality, woman-centred service in a clean and welcoming environment at our consultant led maternity units at the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath and Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton. Our maternity services offer a choice of having you baby either in a hospital setting or a homebirth. Our hospital facilities include fully equipped labour wards and neonatal intensive care.

You can expect to be treated as an individual and respect will be given to your needs and those of your family to ensure your care is holistic. We will act with integrity and responsibility and share information to help achieve a happy healthy pregnancy and birth.

Our vision and values are integral to the provision of maternity services. Support, respect, integrity and responsibility is shown to women, visitors and our colleagues. This encourages an environment where holistic care is delivered and promoted through lifelong learning, and challenge is healthy and welcomed to encourage development and growth of our service.

We aim to ensure your birth is kept as normal as possible, enabling choice, flexibility and confidence to all women in our care. Safety is paramount and our team is committed to practicing in a reliable and evidence based way.

We look forward to taking care of you and working in partnership when you choose to have your baby with Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust.
