Very difficult to get parking on site - you need to walk, cycle, or park at the Racecourse and get a shuttlebus in
Notes & systemsMake a change
Paper notes, electronic obs (except A&E where it is paper based), e-prescribing is rolling out across the trust currently. Bleeps as per standard NHS (except you can't view previous bleeps if bleeped again)
Food & CanteenMake a change
Not the best selection for a tertiary centre. Subway on site open for lunch, a small Costa at the front of the hospital, a small WHSmith near paeds A&E, otherwise small shops dotted around that sell basic sandwiches/crisps/snacks/hot drinks. A canteen exists but is across the road from the main hospital so not easy to get to if working across most of the hospital.
Facilities & Doctors MessMake a change
Mess is relatively active - pizza Fridays, groups for most sports, usually a monthly event. Downside is that it only seems to be advertised on Facebook. The mess itself is medium sized with 2 microwaves, toaster, fridge/freezer, a few sofas, 3 computers and 2 bunk beds.
Most tend to live in Kemptown (close to hospital but parking is quite difficult and the area is a little run down) or Hove (nicer but further away). Parking is notoriously difficult in Brighton.
