Vomiting and Diarrhoea

We have had some cases of vomiting and diarrhoea at St Peter’s and are restricting visits to Swan, Maple, Holly and Cherry wards to prevent it from spreading.

If you were planning to visit one of these wards, please phone the ward before you travel to the hospital.

Please can we remind you that if you have had a bout of vomiting and/or diarrhoea to not visit the hospital until you have been free of symptoms for 48 hours.

Visitors are advised to use the alcohol sanitiser prior to and entering the ward area and to wash their hands with soap and water before leaving the room/bay. Visitors should not eat or drink whilst on the ward.

Trust Merger

Our proposed merger with the Royal Surrey County Hospital

Link to our merger website

 

The Boards of Ashford & St Peter’s Hospitals and Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trusts have decided to pause their proposed merger planning to allow more time to focus on the financial position.

In the light of the significant pressures on the NHS nationally, both financially and operationally, both Trusts have work to do on their own individual areas of challenge. In addition, both Trusts need to ensure that we take account of the national and regional policies as they change and become clear.

Current predictions however mean that the merger plans – as they are currently described - would not be able to realise the anticipated benefits needed to make the merger viable, and thus the benefits to patients. The deteriorating financial position at Royal Surrey is a significant contributing factor, which both Boards have taken into account as part of their review of the current situation
