Originally established in 1998 from the merger of Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals, the Trust has been on a long journey of development and improvement to its current position as the largest provider of acute hospital services to Surrey residents, and having become a Foundation Trust in December 2010.
Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is the largest provider of acute hospital services in Surrey, and serves a population of around 380,000 people across North West Surrey and parts of Hounslow.
It provides a whole range of services across the two hospital sites - Ashford Hospital, Middlesex and St Peter's Hospital in Chertsey. The majority of planned care, like day case and orthopaedic surgery and rehabilitation services, is provided at Ashford, with more complex medical and surgical care and emergency services at St Peter's. Both hospitals provide a wide range of outpatient clinics.
Specialist services include orthopaedics, cardiology, vascular services, bariatric surgery and neo-natal intensive care. The current Monitor governance rating is Green (the highest) which is a reflection of the quality of the services. The Trust works hard to ensure quality remains its top priority which is reflected in the most recent Care Quality Commission reports that shows no concerns.
The Trust was recently nominated as a top 40 hospital by CHKS (a national provider of healthcare intelligence), based on a number of important quality and safety indicators. It has recently been reported as one of the top performing hospitals nationally for hip fracture care.
