Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a single-site hospital, based in Guildford, which serves a population of more than 330,000 across south west Surrey.
We are a specialist tertiary cancer centre, offering state of the art diagnostic and treatment services to a population of up to 2 million. The Trust celebrated its 150th birthday on 27 April 2016.
As an NHS Foundation Trust, we have a 26-strong Council of Governors and over 8,000 public members. We employ around 3,800 members of staff making us one of Guildford’s largest employers. In addition, the hospital is supported by a thriving group of 500 volunteers all of whom provide valuable services on an independent, voluntary basis.
We have five divisions led by management and clinician partnerships:
- Medicine and Access
- Women and Children
- Diagnostics and Clinical Support Services
We also attract referrals from across the country for some specialties including urology and our Minimal Access Therapy Training Unit (key-hole surgery) is one of only three such training units in the UK.
Royal Surrey’s budgeted income for 2017/18 is £339 million and we have in excess of 500 beds and 14 operating theatres.
Our patients also benefit from state of the art diagnostic equipment including two MRI scanners, four CT scanners, interventional radiology equipment and a gamma camera. We have one of the lowest mortality rates in the country.
We see around 336,000 outpatients a year, 90,000 patients are admitted for treatment, around 74,000 patients attend our A&E department and we deliver more than 3,000 babies.
