The RSCH serves a population of 320,000 for emergency and general hospital services and 1.3 million people for cancer services across Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire. The hospital has an annual income of £257 million and employs around 3,500 people.

The Royal Surrey Charity raises funds to improve the patient experience at the hospital as well as enabling the latest treatment and specialist equipment to be purchased and invests in research into innovative treatments. In 2013 the Trust successfully raised over £1m to purchase an advanced stereotactic radiotherapy machine to provide the latest treatment for cancer patients.
