  • Staffing levels

We provide acute hospital and community health services for people living in East Sussex and surrounding areas.

Our services are mainly provided from two district general hospitals, Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne DGH both of which have Emergency Departments and provide care 24 hours a day. They offer a comprehensive range of surgical, medical and maternity services supported by a full range of diagnostic and therapy services.

At Bexhill Hospital we provide outpatients, ophthalmology, rehabilitation and intermediate care services. At Rye, Winchelsea and District Memorial Hospital we provide Outpatient and inpatient intermediate care services.

At Firwood House we jointly provide, with Adult Social Care, inpatient intermediate care services. Our community staff also provide care in the patient’s own home and from a number of clinics and health centres and GP surgeries.

The role of East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust is to provide the best possible healthcare service to patients, who come first in everything the organisation does.

There are some 525,000 people who live in East Sussex and the Trust is one of the largest organisations in the county. We employ over 6,000 dedicated staff with an annual turnover of £365 million.
