Brighton Hospital FAQs
How do I get an appointment to see a consultant?You would usually need to see your GP, or one of our private GPs, who will then put together a referral to see one of our consultants. However, at Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital, obtaining a referral first is not always essential for some of our consultants, although it is still recommended. Call the number above to check a particular consultant’s referral needs.
How long would it take me to get an appointment?We endeavour to ensure all private patients will be seen within a few days and at a time that is convenient for you. Our appointments are designed to be flexible around your needs and activities.
Can I see a consultant for an appointment after work or at the weekend?Our outpatient services operate from 08:00 - 20:00 Monday to Friday plus certain Saturday 09:00 - 13:00. Post-operatively, if a consultant decided they needed to see a patient urgently, this would be co-ordinated by our out-of-hours team. The hospital is open 6 days a week, the wards 7 days a week, 52 weeks of the year.
Can I choose which consultant I wish to see?Yes, as a private patient you can choose your consultant.
Do you offer treatment for children?
We do indeed, although it would be non-invasive surgery for three- to sixteen-year-olds across paediatrics, dermatology, ENT, orthopaedics and gynaecology (for 16+ patients).
Would my surgery be conducted by a junior doctor?No, our hospital only works with consultants and, therefore, you can be assured of the highest level of clinical care. Your appointments, surgery and follow-ups will be conducted by your consultant.
What are your hospital infection rates?Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital is vigorous in its cleaning standards and keeping our hospitals clean and free of MRSA and C.difficule is a top priority. As a result, the risk of infection to patients is very low.
When can my family visit if I’m an inpatient?Our visiting hours are between 13:00 and 18:00 for a maximum of two adults. Unfortunately, we are unable to allow children under 16 up on to the wards. Your recovery is of paramount importance and you may find that you are very tired following surgery. With this in mind, visitors are encouraged to leave by 18:00.
Is there parking available?There is a large carpark in front of the hospital. Parking is free, provided you enter your registration number on the screens in reception. Guidance is given by the reception team.
Is there accommodation nearby where my family can stay?
Yes, there is and, if you need suggestions, the Downs Hotel at the crossroads between Warren Road and Falmer Road offers rooms and a more traditional pub stay, whereas the boutique Malmaison in Brighton Marina offers a waterfront experience. Brighton is, of course, full of very nice places to stay.
I am disabled/require assistance during my visit. Who do I need to tell?
Please let our staff know your requirements when you contact us. We are happy to make suitable arrangements before your visit. If you’d like to bring a friend or family member, please feel free to do so.
