About: Royal Sussex County Hospital Royal Sussex County Hospital Brighton BN2 5BE
Posted by Gary Walker
Bighton's County Hospital is situated in the most ridiculous position. It takes ages to get through the traffic in Brighton to reach the hospital. Once there, there is nowhere to park and the car park is always full. Why are the trust investing millions in expansion programmes for this site, when it would be better and probably more cost effective, to sell the site off for prime building development and housing, utilising the financial assets from the sale to build a new hosital which is situated somewhere you can get to such as Patcham on the A23? Furthermore, you have to be fit to visit this hospital because it's on top of a hill and the likelihood is, the only place you can get parked is at the bottom; And don't bother catching a train because the station is on the opposite side of the city and involves walking at least an hour to get there! The situation is ludicrous and defies belief.
