St Richards Hospital, Chichester

The Chichester Suite is a dedicated private patient unit situated on the first floor of the main hospital at St Richard's Hospital, Chichester.  The Suite has single rooms which all have en suite facilities.  The Private Patients here have access to all facilities based within the hospital including the High dependency unit and Intensive care unit.  These facilities may support the treatment pathways of those patients requiring complex surgery or those with complicated medical problems.

Outpatients can be seen on the Chichester suite in the two outpatient consulting rooms located at the entrance of the ward.   In certain circumstances to facilitate a patients access to specific treatment Miss Tipples will see private patients in the Women and Children's outpatient department.

For more information please contact Miss Tipples’ secretary or the Private Patients team at St Richards on 01243 528811 X 5287


Why go private?

This is a very personal choice. I believe it allows you to be seen by the Consultant of your choice at a time of your choosing in a dedicated gynaecology suite supported by specialist nurses. The appointment times are generous allowing you time to discuss your problem. It is always possible to see you quicker than in the NHS.

If you require surgery you will receive consultant delivered care at all times and have the opportunity to recover in a private room. We are happy to put together package prices for self funding procedures.


Appointments are available in our weekly outpatient clinics which run on Wednesdays and Thursdays at Chichester Nuffield.

Emergency appointments are available by arrangement with Shelley Whitbourn on 01243 753023.

Where possible we try to be flexible to accommodate your wishes and ensure you have easy access to excellent care with minimal disruption to your life.
