Care for old combined in the Regency Centre at Brighton hospital
11:30am Saturday 12th January 2013 in News
A hospital has launched a centre that specialises in the care of older people.
Five wards at Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton have been unified to create the Regency Centre.
The wards are Jowers, Vallance, Fleming and Lister, Bristol and Chichester, which are all based in the hospital’s Barry Building.
Staff hope the centre will help improve patient care by changing the perception and attitudes towards the wards specialising in treating older patients.
Head of nursing for older people Ann Gibbins said: “We have an increasing ageing population and the care for older people has never been so important.
“A lot of work is being done to improve the care and dignity for older people and creating a defined centre plays a role in doing that.”
