Overview

With thousands of staff caring for patients around the clock, St George's Healthcare NHS Trust is one of the largest hospital and community health service providers in the UK.

Our main site, St George’s Hospital in Tooting – one of the country’s principal teaching hospitals – is shared with St George’s University of London, which trains medical students and carries out advanced medical research.

St George's Hospital is a major acute hospital that offers very specialist care for the most complex of injuries and illnesses, including trauma, neurology, cardiac care, renal transplantation, cancer care and stroke.   The hospital also provides all the usual care you would expect from a local NHS hospital such as accident and emergency, maternity services and care for older people and children.

With over 6,000 staff and around 1,000 beds, St George's Hospital serves a population of 1.3 million across southwest London. A large number of services, such as cardiothoracic medicine and surgery, neurosciences and renal transplantation, also cover significant populations from Surrey and Sussex, totalling about 3.5 million people.

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 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, nurseries, patients' homes and Wandsworth Prison.
