Dear Freedom of Information West Sussex,

Thank you for your response. Please could you clarify something for me. I thought that NHS West Sussex managed some hospitals directly i.e. Zachary Merton Hospital, Arundel & District Community Hospital, Midhurst Community Hospital and Bognor Regis War Memorial Hospital. Is this correct or has the control of these been passed to another trust? Many thanks

Yours sincerely,

Marc Cousins
