University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust (UHSussex) was formed on 1 April 2021.
The Trust was created by a merger of Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, running hospitals in Brighton and Haywards Heath, and Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, running hospitals in Shoreham-by-Sea, Worthing and Chichester.
It is an acute teaching hospital trust working across five main sites:
- Royal Sussex County Hospital – in Brighton

- St.Richard’s Hospital – in Chichester
- Southlands Hospital – in Shoreham-by-Sea
- Worthing Hospital – in the centre of Worthing
