University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust

University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust

University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest acute trusts in the UK and provides a wide range of clinical services to people in West Sussex, Brighton and Hove, and parts of East Sussex.

Our seven hospitals host more than 1.5 million outpatient appointments, A&E visits and surgery cases every year and employ nearly 20,000 staff.

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.

Mission and values

‘excellent care every time’

All our efforts to do this put the interests of our patients first and foremost, and are underpinned by our values:

  • Compassion
  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Respect
  • Professionalism
  • Inclusion 

These values were selected by our staff, patients and public when we were talking about the merger and the sort of organisation we want University Hospitals Sussex to be.

They combine the values of both Western Sussex Hospitals and Brighton & Sussex University Hospitals and added an important new focus on inclusion.


We are committed to equality and diversity for our staff and patients. This means that we aim to create a fairer society, that is equally accessible to all, while recognising and valuing difference in its broadest sense.

 We believe that any form of discrimination whether it is based on age, gender, disability, race, sexual orientation, faith or religion is unacceptable and will be dealt with swift and appropriate action.

We have a zero tolerance culture to any form of abuse and violence (verbal/physical) and any violation of this policy may effect employment for staff, and ability to visit or be treated for general members of the public.

The Trust believes in building a workforce which values and whose diversity reflects the communities it serves, enabling it to deliver the best possible healthcare service to all local communities.

The Trust aims to ensure that the principles of diversity and inclusion underpin all our employment and service policies and procedures. The Trust is committed to effectively resolving any case of discrimination in the organisation and aims to ensure that managers and staff are aware of their responsibilities in this area.
