The 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; and a 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 a NHS Foundation Trust, we have a 26-strong Council of Governors and over 8,000 public members. We employ 3,500 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.
During 2016 the Trust appointed a new Chief Executive, Paula Head, who has changed the Trust’s management structure from two portfolios into the following five divisions led by management and clinician partnerships:
- Medicine and Access
- Women and Children
- Diagnostics and Clinical Support Services
