The Ridgeway Hospital

The Ridgeway Hospital offers treatments and services for those who live in Swindon, Wiltshire and further afield.

Welcome to The Ridgeway Hospital

Established in 1984, we have an excellent reputation for providing rapid access to diagnosis and treatment for routine and complex conditions.  

In June 2022 we were rated as Good by the CQC, the independent regulator for the Care and Quality Commission, who described The Ridgeway Hospital as having effective, well led-services. In addition the CQC noted that the hospital treated patients with compassion and kindness. We were further praised for the way staff involve the patients and their families throughout their treatment which help patients make better and more informed decisions.

Our hospitals remain open and treating patients. We are working hard to keep our services running as normal, and have added additional safety measures and checks to help protect our patients and staff.  You can continue to book new consultations with us, and we look forward to welcoming you into our hospital.


The Ridgeway Hospital has 56 beds.  All patient rooms offer the privacy and comfort of en-suite facilities, TV and telephone,  Equipped to a high standard, the rooms provide a relaxed and comfortable environment, conducive to rapid recovery and convalescence.

The Ridgeway Hospital is home to an Imaging Suite that offers a full and extensive range of services, including a 1.5T MRI Scanner, and a CT scanning facility.

The physiotherapy department incorporates fitness, health screening and wellbeing, along with a large, well equipped gymnasium and hydrotherapy pool.

The hospital has three theatres, one of which is home to a Stryker Nav Suite which is a completely integrated computer assisted surgery solution with a ceiling-mounted camera that tracks instrumentation.

In 2021 we refurbished our Endoscopy Suite to offer our patients a dedicated endoscopy facility in a calm and welcoming atmosphere, with patient privacy at the forefront of its design.

The Ambulatory Day Care Suite which we opened in January 2022, has been developed in line with modern healthcare needs, whereby techniques have improved so much that people who might overwise have needed an overnight stay after their surgery can now be offered aftercare treatment in a comfortable environment, before returning home the same day. 

Our facilities at the hospital enable our consultants to undertake a wide range of procedures from routine investigations to complex surgery. This specialist expertise is supported by caring and professional medical staff, with dedicated nursing teams, and a Resident Medical Officer on duty 24 hours a day, providing care within a friendly and comfortable environment.

The Ridgeway offers free parking for patients.  We recommend that you allow more time to find a space during peak hours due to high demand on our hospital at this time.
