COVID-19 Management and New Measures
We have put in place a number of measures that will enable us to prioritise how we provide care, enabling us to focus on those patients who are critically ill.
These measures include:
- Postponing some routine and non-urgent elective procedures and operations.
- Continuing to prioritise those who need urgent and cancer care.
- Working together as a system with partners, to enable additional bed capacity, deployment of staff, as well as timely and safe discharge of our patients into the community, to support our Covid-19 response.
- Moving more of our outpatient services to virtual appointments to reduce the need for patients to come to our sites, which in turn reduces the risk of increasing levels of Covid-19 transmission.
We would like to thank the public for their support at this time, and remind people to follow the national guidance to reduce the spread of Covid-19; this will help protect our families, keep frontline services running and save lives.
Putting Patients First
Our emergency department is located at St Peter’s Hospital. Please only visit us if you are seriously ill or it is an emergency. Minor injuries will be directed to our Urgent Treatment Centre opposite A&E.
If you need to change or cancel your appointment please give us as much notice as possible by calling the appointments centre on 01932 723831 / 01784 884351 or email

The aim of these pages are to give you support and information on your discharge from hospital.
As you may be aware we are currently constructing two new wards in the car park next to the Rowley Bristow Unit. This will necessitate a large number of very wide prefabricated sections being brought onto the Hospital grounds by lorries, each lorry will take up most of the width of the estate roads to get to its destination. Once at the building site the loads will be lifted into position by crane and only one lorry will attend the hospital at any one time.
On Monday 1st March, we held our first-ever Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals (ASPH) New Year’s Honours List awards ceremony. Individuals and teams at the Trust were recognised for their hard work and effort with awards in categories such as ‘Passion for Excellence’, ‘Unsung Hero’ and ‘Inspiring Leader’, and all of which were nominated by colleagues at ASPH.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Trust has introduced a number of measures which include visiting restrictions (except in some circumstances). This is part of our Infection Prevention and Control strategy to minimise footfall on site and to help reduce transmission of the virus across the hospitals to protect patients and staff.
This spring, if you’re not feeling well and over the counter medicines are not helping, don’t wait for it to get worse – speak to your GP and avoid a trip to hospital.

Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals have introduced an online booking option for blood tests, giving patients the ability to book in advance at a time that is convenient to them.
This helps reduce waiting times and minimise delays for patients ... find out more.
How you can get involved
Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals' Charity (number 1058567) exists to enhance the facilities, and provide equipment that is above and beyond what the NHS can currently provide.
In these worrying times, the generosity of people and businesses from our community has been truly amazing. We are so grateful for all of the contributions and donations that have been made to support our staff.
