Most of us are probably very familiar with the Rheumatology department in the Latilla building at the Royal Sussex County Hospital and have spent many an hour waiting for our appointments in what everyone would probably agree is a very dilapidated building that has definitely seen better days. So it’s fantastic news that the department and the wonderful staff that work there are moving and getting a new home. If you’ve driven or walked past recently you may have seen cranes and a lot of construction going on beside the old building. The first stage of the new development is a modular building which is being installed in front of the East Wing of the Barry building. It consists of 6 levels and will temporarily house the Rheumatology department from Autumn 2015. This will be it’s home until the second phase of the building work is done, which is due to be done in 2019, when the modules will be removed again.
