St. George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the regional specialist care provider for south west London, Surrey and beyond. The trust provides a high quality, comprehensive range of health services from leading edge tertiary and trauma care to community services.
With national and regional referrals added to our local 3.5m catchment, we serve a population of around 5m.
Co-located with St George's, University of London and with both organisations now in a formal strategic alliance with King's Health Partners, the trust delivers with its partners high quality research and education both of which contribute to the healthcare provision of tomorrow.
Acute and tertiary health services are delivered from over 1,000 beds across two sites, by around 8,000 staff.
St. George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is a major acute hospital that offers very specialist care for complex injuries and illnesses, including trauma, neurology, cardiac care, renal transplantation, cancer care and stroke. It has a helipad which opened in spring 2014 and the work of its emergency department can currently be seen on Channel 4's '24 Hours in A&E' programme. The hospital also provides all the usual care you would expect from a local NHS district general hospital.
We also provide services at Queen Mary's Hospital in Roehampton. These include outpatient rapid diagnostic and treatment facilities, a minor injuries unit, limb fitting services and 70 elderly, intermediate care and rehabilitation beds.
As well as hospital services, we provide a wide variety of specialist, maternity and community services to children, adults, older people and people with learning disabilities. These services are provided from St John's Therapy Centre, 11 health centres and clinics, schools, nursing homes and people's own homes. The trust also manages the healthcare service at HMP Wandsworth.
