Argus readers suggest names for Brighton’s new hospital building

ARGUS readers have submitted their name suggestions for a new clinic that is to be opened to patients in the new year.

All the building needs is a name – with the NHS leaving the task to the public.

A popular suggestion came from Sandra Vincent, who named the building after Louisa Martindale, a doctor, surgeon, suffragette and writer who worked in Brighton.

Sandra said: “She was the first female member of the Council of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

“She was wild and controversial, and also contributed to the city as a judge, prison commissioner and member of the National Council of Women.”

Sussex doctor Octavia Wilberforce was also suggested.

She pursued a medical career despite her parents’ opposition, treating Virginia Woolf’s mental illness in the last years of her life and running a women’s shelter near Henfield.

Other proposed “Brighton heroes” are Tony Bloom, owner and chairman of Brighton and Hove Albion, and Fatboy Slim.

While one Facebook user, Stephen Harvey, suggested naming the new building after “one of Britain’s most famous figures” – Katie Price.

He said: “I’m sure Katie would be delighted to cut the ribbon at the official opening ceremony and meet some of the staff for selfies and thank them for their work.”

Another reader, Ann-Marie Newman, suggested naming the building after the late Barbara Lynes, a matron she worked for when Ann first started working at the Royal Sussex County Hospital.

“She knew every patient,” she said.

Inspired by the sea views some patients will enjoy in some of the new wards, David Warner proposed the Sea of ​​Tranquility Building.

Despite a warning that Hospital McHospital Face would not be considered, one reader found a way around this with Hospy McHospitalface.

Suggestions should be no longer than three words, be relevant to Sussex as a whole and meaningful to the wide range of people the hospital serves.

If you can come up with a better suggestion, people have until August 28th to submit their ideas at uhsussex.nhs.uk/shareaname.

The name of the new building will be announced towards the end of the year and will open to the first patients in February.
