Developing a Centre of Surgical Excellence at Ashford Hospital

A major project to increase surgical capacity and help to reduce waiting times for people across Surrey Heartlands and neighbouring regions is underway with a surgical centre of excellence being developed at Ashford Hospital.

The centre at Ashford will include two new ophthalmology theatres and two new main Laminar flow theatres and will provide increased capacity for elective orthopaedic procedures, including hip and knee replacement surgery and ophthalmology eye surgery.

The facilities will provide the Trust with a much-needed standalone and COVID-19-secure elective surgical facility.

The elective centre will also create greater opportunity for our teams, with more specialist training, experience and opportunities for innovation and it will help to provide an improved working environment, with upgraded facilities to support the best possible care and experience for patients and staff.

Creating a dedicated elective centre at Ashford will provide an effective, integrated, and efficient service which will improve patient and staff experience and provides a solution that is in line with best practice prescribed by the NHS and other bodies as the most effective way to address long waiting lists.

This expansion is part of the NHS Elective Recovery Plan to build more surgical hubs across the country to tackle the backlogs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and to deliver more elective activity by 2024/25.

Enabling estates works have started on site at Ashford, with a target completion date for the centre to be fully open later this year.

This is a development we’re undertaking in partnership with the provider collaborative trusts and the ICS.
