Sussex Police are investigating around 40 possible cases of medical negligence at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton, following allegations made by two consultant surgeons about patient safety. The allegations relate to deaths caused by mistakes in neurosurgery and general surgery departments between 2015 and 2020. The surgeons claimed the hospital did not investigate the deaths rigorously, and had promoted insufficiently competent surgeons and overused locum doctors who were not adequately skilled. The hospital trust is cooperating fully with the investigation, while the British Medical Association is supporting one of the whistleblowers.
