Conquest Hospital

A modern district general hospital in St. Leonards-on-Sea on the outskirts of Hastings. All of its services are on four levels with the main wards located to the rear of the hospital overlooking a lagoon.


The team of Doctors, Nurses, Administrators and Healthcare workers at the Conquest Hospital work tirelessly day and night to deliver the highest standard of healthcare they possible can to the East Sussex community.

Whilst of course the vast majority of this work is funded by the NHS, the NHS funds have to be rationed across the UK which will lead to some restrictions, shortages and delays.

The Friends do everything they can to minimise this and to ensure the Conquest Hospital enjoys a little extra funding raised locally to help the Hospital attain the highest standards of service and range of services.
