The Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is a public benefit corporation authorised since December 2009, under the National Health Service Act 2006. It is a Trust, 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.
As a NHS Foundation Trust, we have a 25-strong Council of Governors and over 8,000 public members. We employ over 4000 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.
The Trust’s management structure comprises five divisions led by management and clinician partnerships:
- Medicine and Access
- Women and Children
- Diagnostics and Clinical Support Services
These divisions are supported by Corporate Services led by Executive Directors.
In 2018 the Trust started providing adult community healthcare services for people in Guildford and Waverley with Procare Health (the federation for GP practices). This is the first time an acute trust has joined forces with a GP federation to provide adult community health services in this way.
The Trust’s executive committee meets weekly. The clinical executive comprising executive directors, chiefs of service and professional directors meets monthly.
