What could be improved

The car parking needs URGENT attention.

Anything else?

As above, you need to get there at least 2 hours before any appointment,as you queue for the car park. Got to be one of the worst hospitals for parking.

Response from Royal Sussex County Hospital

Robert,

Thank you for taking time to leave feedback. We are sorry to hear of your problems with parking at the hospital we know how frustrating this can be. Unfortunately the car park is not big enough for the number of people coming into the hospital but through our 3Ts programme there are plans in place to modernise the Royal Sussex County Hospital and this redevelopment will include appropriate parking facilities for our patients.

In the meantime, two new parking attendants have been taken on to help manage traffic into and out of the County’s multi-storey car park. We have also installed new digital car-parking signs to show drivers how many spaces there are and how long the wait will be at different times of the day so they can choose whether to wait or find alternative on-street parking nearby.

Patient feedback is crucial for us to continue to provide the best care that we can - thanks again.
