Our annual income is £257 million and we have 527 beds and 14 operating theatres.  We employ approximately 3,000 staff, making us the second largest employer in Guildford.  We have very close links with the University of Surrey and have an extensive education, training and research portfolio. 

The Trust has a very strong reputation for minimally invasive surgery and laparoscopic surgery is used widely across the surgical specialties.  The trust is a national leader in surgical training and laparoscopic surgery and MATTU (Minimal Access Therapy Training Unit) is one of the most advanced training centres for this type of surgery.  It has also been designated as a national training centre for laparoscopic colorectal surgery. 

Patients at the Royal Surrey also benefit from state of the art diagnostic equipment including two MRI scanners, four CT scanners, interventional radiology equipment and a gamma camera.

We see around 280,000 outpatients a year, 61,000 patients are admitted for treatment, around 70,000 patients attend our A&E department and we deliver more than 3,200 babies.

The Hospital is structured around 13 ‘Specialty Business Units' (SBU), which cover our main areas of business:

A&E / Acute General Medicine and Geriatrics / ENT - General Surgery / Gynaecology

Maxillo-Facial and Orthodontics / Medical Outpatients / Obstetrics /Oncology and Medical Physics

Ophthalmology / Paediatrics / Trauma and Orthopaedics / Urology

The SBUs are supported by the Clinical Support Services:

Theatres, Anaesthetics and ICU / Outpatients / Pathology / PharmacyRadiology / Therapies

We also provide services to our patients in the community and run outpatient clinics at Cranleigh, Haslemere and Woking hospitals and a number of GP surgeries.  Patients can also now go to Haslemere Hospital for endoscopies and we are looking for opportunities to provide even more of services closer to patients' homes.
