Based on a gently sloping site in Hastings, the Conquest Hospital is a modern District General Hospital. Built over four levels, the hospital opened 16 years ago and in 2002 merged with Eastbourne Hospital to form East Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust serving the population of East Sussex. The Trust employs over 5000 staff and is an extremely busy hospital trust.
In the last year the Trust’s maternity teams delivered 3835 babies; 95,393 people were treated as inpatients and day cases and a total of 115,147 patients were treated in their two emergency departments. They also carried out nearly five million pathology tests.download complete case study (pdf)
