Royal Sussex County Hospital Brighton

Sussex Police are investigating allegations of medical negligence at the University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust, relating to neurosurgery and general surgery at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton in the period between 2015 and 2021.

Details of Incident

A number of cases from within the specified NHS departments and during the specified time period have been assessed and will form part of the ongoing investigation.


A dedicated team of specially-trained officers have been contacting those patients or families of patients whose cases will be included in the investigation and providing information to support them while the investigation is ongoing.


This specialist support will be available to them as our enquiries continue.


The investigation is at an early stage and this does not necessarily mean this will lead to criminal prosecution. We are working closely with partner agencies and the University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust is co-operating fully with our investigation.


Sussex Police is committed to conducting a thorough and transparent investigation. Due to the complex nature of the enquiries, this is likely to take some time to complete. If you have any concerns or information relating to the investigation, please complete the Information Form below.
