There are currently cases of the highly contagious Norovirus vomiting bug on several wards at the Royal Sussex County Hospital. Staff at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust have put in place measures to control the spread of this infection.
Visitors to the Royal Sussex County Hospital are being urged not to attend the hospital if they have symptoms of diarrhoea or vomiting to help protect patients on wards.

Norovirus can spread to others very easily. The best thing to do is to stay at home until at least 48 hours after the symptoms have cleared to reduce the risk of passing it on.
