Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust runs Worthing Hospital, Southlands Hospital in Shoreham-by-Sea and St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester, West Sussex, England and serves a population of around 450,000 people across a catchment area covering most of West Sussex. It was formed through a merger in 2009.
In April 2014 the maternity unit at Worthing and St Richard’s was awarded the “level three” award by the Clinical Negligence Scheme for Trusts (CNST).
In 2016 Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (WSHFT) was rated as ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). At the time it was one of only three acute trusts in the country to receive the health watchdog’s highest rating by the Care Quality Commission.
Marianne Griffiths, the chief executive, was named chief executive of the year at the Health Service Journal awards in November 2016, and the top chief executive 2018 and again in 2019.
In 2019 Marianne Griffiths was made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.
In 2019 Western Sussex Hospitals was the first non-specialist acute trust in the country to be rated ‘Outstanding’ in all the six key inspection areas assessed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
In July 2020 it announced plans to merge with Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust.
