St. Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey is situated in greenbelt parkland between Woking and Chertsey near junction 11 of the M25.
The main centres of population served by the hospital are Woking, Weybridge, Chertsey, Staines and Walton on Thames. Originally St. Peter’s Hospital was built to serve casualties of the Second World War. Over the years, the Hospital has been rebuilt, developed and extended to include maternity services, a department/clinic area and a new theatre complex.
In the early 1990s, the Duchess of Kent Wing which includes the Post Graduate Education Centre and modern well-equipped wards was opened. A new A&E, ITU and Orthopaedic Unit opened in the Summer of 1998 and a £1.5m upgrading of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was opened in 2005. In 2006 two new wards were built onto the Duchess of Kent Wing.
