Staff at Horsham Hospital hosted a visit from Horsham MP Jeremy Quin to give him an idea of the work they do.
The workers from the Sussex Community NHS Trust were from community, nursing and therapy teams based at the hospital. They support people to live healthy, independent lives in their own homes as well as support people to get back home after a period of hospital stay.
The service includes a Time to Talk self-referral service which provides talking therapy treatments to help people with stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self-esteem and relationship difficulties.
Mr Quin saw the Horizon Unit, a 38-bedded unit for people who need short-term rehabilitation or palliative care. He heard that the unit is seeing more elderly people with multiple, complex conditions including dementia.
The hospital also has a minor injuries unit, which includes treatment of fractures the people of all ages.
Mr Quin said: “Horsham Hospital is held with enormous affection by local people.
The range and quality of services provided is impressive as is the dedication of all who work there. I greatly enjoyed meeting the staff and management at the hospital, which I hope can be the centre for increased services as we continue to provide for a growing population.”
