Our 30 theatres are spread across six operating suites within the hospital and a five theatre stand-alone day case unit. Our seven cardiac and neurosurgery theatres are located in the state-of-the-art Atkinson Morley Wing, where over 4,000 of the most complex neurosurgical and cardiothoracic procedures are undertaken each year with excellent clinical results.
