STRUCTURE: The board of Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust has given the go ahead for a new day surgery centre.

In his weekly message to staff on 5 October, acting chief executive Chris Adcock said: “Last week, our Board approved the business case to build a new, bespoke day surgery unit at the Princess Royal Hospital.

“We already have planning permission and as this is a modular build the majority of the construction and assembly will take place off site.”

He added: “The aim is to open the new £3m unit, which will undertake at least 3,000 operations a year, early in 2013.”
