The Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford became one of the first NHS Trusts in 1991.
The RSCH provides a comprehensive local service to patients. In addition to local services, several of our specialities are centres attracting national referrals; for example, supra-regional assay services are provided by pathology; the St Luke's Cancer Centre provides a regional service; and the Trust has one of just three training units for key-hole surgery in the UK. The Trust has strong links with the University of Surrey and a number of Medical Schools.
The Trust is committed to continually improving the quality of its services to patients, GPs and Health Authorities. The Education Centre houses the District Library, Post Graduate Medical Centre, lecture suite and conference rooms. There is a very effective clinical audit and quality programme, which focuses on promoting excellence and quality throughout the Trust.
