Overview

The Great Western Hospital is a modern hospital providing emergency care, surgery, diagnostics, paediatrics, maternity, outpatient and day case services.

The hospital opened in December 2002, replacing the Princess Margaret Hospital in Old Town, Swindon. The GWH is superbly designed and equipped and offers a first class environment for patients, visitors and staff, with over 30% of our beds provided in single rooms with en-suite facilities, helping maintain patients’ privacy and dignity whilst under our care.

The GWH offers a range of services and facilities from a busy Emergency Department, a dynamic Radiology department and a high performing Maternity unit which includes a co-located Birth Centre.

Safety is a top priority for us and we pride ourselves in having very tough infection control procedures in place.
