About our hospitals
At Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust we care for our community. Our mission is to put the patient first by delivering great care to every patient, every day.
The Trust offers an extensive range of services, including cancer care, pathology, surgery, and gynaecology to over 490,000 people in south west London and north east Surrey. We operate from two busy general hospitals, Epsom Hospital and St Helier Hospital, and run services from other locations, including Sutton Hospital. We are also part of two innovative integrated care partnerships – Sutton Health and Care, and Surrey Downs Health and Care, which bring together health, social and community care in our areas.
St Helier Hospital is home to the South West Thames Renal and Transplantation Unit and Queen Mary’s Hospital for Children, while Epsom Hospital is home to the South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC). Both Epsom and St Helier hospitals have Accident and Emergency departments (A&E) and Maternity services (Obstetrics).
With nearly 900,000 people coming to our hospitals for care and treatment every year, our almost 6,000 staff and 500 volunteers work around the clock to keep our busy hospitals running smoothly.
As teaching hospitals, we play a key role in the education and training of tomorrow’s doctors, nurses and other health professionals. Both sites work in partnership with St George’s Hospital and St George’s Medical School in south London to deliver high quality education and research. Outside St George’s Hospital, we support the education of more medical students than any other teaching hospital in south London.
