About St George’s
With nearly 8,000 dedicated staff caring for more than one million patients each year around the clock, St George’s Healthcare NHS Trust is one of the largest healthcare providers in the UK.
We provide a full range of specialist, acute and community care to patients of all ages from across the south of England.
St George’s Hospital
Set in the heart of London, St George’s is the city’s largest hospital and we are one of only a handful of hospitals to have recorded lower than expected mortality rates every year since records began, despite dealing with the most serious and complex cases.
It is not only our staff who are world-class – our facilities are also top of the range. We are continually investing in refurbishing our theatres, new buildings and facilities at St George’s to make sure that we have the best possible environment for our staff and patients.
Our helipad means that the most seriously ill patients from across the south of England can be in our care within minutes of being picked up by paramedics. St George’s is one of only two hospitals in London that has a helipad, and the only hospital south of the Thames.
As a regional specialist centre, St George’s provides services for the most seriously ill people from south west London and Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. Our regional services include:
- Major Trauma Centre
- Hyper Acute Stoke Unit
- Heart Attack Centre
- Complex maternity and neonatal services
- Cancer services
- Renal services
St George’s is one of the country’s principal teaching hospitals, and the only teaching hospital in London that shares its site with a university – St George’s University of London, which trains medical students and carries out advanced medical research. The hospital also hosts the St George’s University of London and Kingston University Faculty of Health and Social Care Sciences, which is responsible for training a wide range of healthcare professionals from across the south of England.
