The Royal Surrey County Hospital is a leading general hospital and specialist centre for cancer services and treatment, based in Guildford. Royal Surrey serves a population of 320,000 people for emergency and general hospital services. Based on the main hospital site, St Luke’s Cancer Centre serves 1.3 million people for cancer services across Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire through the St Luke’s Cancer Alliance.
It is an innovative hospital packed with ambition and is an excellent place to start your career as well as move it up a gear or to continue developing yourself professionally.
A regional cancer centre for Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire, it is also a tertiary specialist centre for ENT and Maxillofacial surgery. It attracts referrals from across the whole country for other specialties (i.e. urology).
The Minimal Access Therapy Training Unit (key-hole surgery) is one of only three such training units in the UK.
The Trust has strong links with the nearby University of Surrey and staff are well supported if they wish to undertake further study. As well as this, staff are able to develop and enhance skills and knowledge by undertaking post-qualification support and training at the hospital’s dedicated Education Centre. These are just some of the training and development opportunities available to staff.
