Our Emergency Department at St Peter's


Our emergency department is located at St Peter’s Hospital. Please only visit us if you are seriously ill or it is an emergency. In A&E patients with the most urgent and life threatening conditions will always be seen first.

Choose well

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. Find out more about finding the right services in our area.

Temporary Closure of Urgent Care Centre

The Urgent Care Centre, located opposite A&E at St Peter’s Hospital will be closed from 19.00 today (Tuesday 26th July) until it re-opens on Saturday 6th August.

This is to enable much needed work to take place to expand and improve the waiting area for patients. Since opening the Urgent Care Centre in March we’ve seen a steady increase in the number of patients using this facility; with over 10,000 in total, which has really helped to relieve pressure in our A&E department. The success of the Urgent Care Centre, however, means that the current waiting area is just not adequate for the number of patients coming through the department.

Whilst the centre is closed, a new modular waiting room will be delivered to the site and craned into position. A plan is in place to ensure the building works are managed and access to A&E, particularly for ambulances, is not compromised.

During this time, there will be some inevitable disruption so please do bear with us. Our main A&E department will be open as usual, so you should still come if you require urgent medical attention. However, if it’s less urgent then please do consider if another local health service may be able to help you – such as a pharmacy, your GP or one of the Walk-in Centres at Woking, Weybridge or Ashford. If you are unsure then you call NHS 111 for help and advice.

Thank you in advance for your patience and support whilst these important works take place.

Meeting our members

On Tuesday evening we held our Annual Members' Meeting in the Postgrad centre at St Peter's. Hosted by Aileen, this is our opportunity with our Governors, to showcase the work we do to our members, colleagues and other stakeholders and a really positive event to come back to in my first week after my summer holiday. It was a hot evening, but even so we had around 75 people who came along to hear about what we are doing and to meet members of staff at our 'marketplace' event ... read the full message
