Thank you for your cooperation.

Runnymede Hospital is located near the historic town of Chertsey in Surrey and next door to Ashford and St Peter's NHS Hospital. It's a small hospital with a comforting, family feel, specialising in cardiology, gastroenterology, general surgery, gynaecology, orthopaedic surgery and urology.

People come to us from all over Surrey, including Esher, Addlestone, Weybridge, Cobham, Chobam, Byfleet and West Byfleet.

We offer clinical excellence in a peaceful environment.  Our experienced healthcare professionals are dedicated and compassionate, and it shows in our results. In our latest patient satisfaction survey, 99.4% of patients said their overall experience of our service was good or very good.

Our Imaging department has recently been significantly refurbished and now houses a CT scanner, enabling Cardiology stress testing and detailed health assessments in addition to general x-ray, ultrasound and some interventional procedures.

The hospital offers physiotherapy for patients post-operatively. It's staffed by chartered state registered physiotherapists who treat sports injuries and conditions like sprains, whiplash and female pelvic health problems.  In conjunction with our General Medicine experts, we also offer a rehabilitation service for patients who have a history of bone or muscle pain, or mobility constraints after surgery (such as a hip or knee replacement).

In addition, Runnymede Hospital offers access to private GPs, health assessments and an on-site pharmacy.

We also have a resident medical officer (RMO) who is available 24 hours a day to ensure that patients are safe and cared for at all times. Should your care needs change following surgery or treatment, we may need to transfer you to another hospital. This will either be to an NHS or another Circle hospital. Transfers of care only take place when absolutely necessary.
