St George's Hospital - PPU
Welcome to St George's Hospital - PPU
With nearly 8,500 dedicated staff caring for patients around the clock, we are the largest healthcare provider in southwest London.
Our main site, St George’s Hospital in Tooting – one of the country’s principal teaching hospitals – is shared with St George’s, University of London, which trains medical students and carries out advanced medical research. St George’s 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 region.
As well as acute hospital services, we provide a wide variety of specialist care and a full range of community services to patients of all ages following integration with Community Services Wandsworth in 2010.
St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust serves a population of 1.3 million across southwest London. A large number of services, such as cardiothoracic medicine and surgery, neurosciences and renal transplantation, also cover significant populations from Surrey and Sussex, totalling around 3.5 million people.
The nursing staff and doctors were brilliant. The care was fantastic. Only issue is that the original X ray of my daughters chest conducted in late July does actually show the foreign object as a square shape which I can see but the result came back to GP as clear. Luckily I asked for a CT scan which shows the foreign object exactly where the square is on the x ray. I feel the radiographer should be shown the X-ray again to help see how it was missed so that in future for professional development and further training. It might benefit them and other patients.
