Real facelift for Worthing Hospital department
7:50am Wednesday 27th February 2013 in News
More than £380,000 is being spent on improvements to a hospital department.
The changes planned for the maxillo-facial – which deals with treatment of face, neck and jaw injuries – jaw unit at Worthing Hospital include installing state-of-the-art equipment in an environment that matches the standard found in the main hospital.
The work will take ten weeks to finish and patients will go to clinics at St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester during this time.
They will see the same staff and any treatment will continue as normal.
Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust admitted the work would cause some disruption but are asking patients to bear with them while the refurbishment is taking place.
