Within the Sussex Cancer Network area we have a range of excellent care provided for people with cancer. The main acute hospitals providing cancer diagnosis, treatment and care within the Sussex Cancer Network are in Hastings, Eastbourne, Brighton, Haywards Heath and Worthing.
The local diagnostic and treatment teams can be either hospital based, or function across more than one orgnisation/location.
Wherever possible we aim to treat you at the hospital nearest your home, however, some treatments require specialist equipment and staff, so you may be asked to attend a specialist centre.
This may be at the Sussex Cancer Centre in Brighton, or at another specialist hospital.
Patients who live in the Hastings area may be offered radiology treatment closer to home at the Kent Cancer Centre in Maidstone
Hospital transport is available to patients who need it medically, this is decided with the consultant.
