Ashford Hospital

Ashford Hospital


This is an exciting time to join Ashford & St. Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (ASPH), as we work on the expansion of our theatres at Ashford Hospital, and move towards the development of a surgical Elective Centre, at Ashford Hospital in Surrey.

Our vision is to create a state of the art centre for excellence for planned surgical procedures; with care delivered by dedicated, specialist teams in a modern and well-equipped environment.

We hope to use this centre to create an environment of learning and facilitate training of the next generation of our skilled NHS workforce.


What is an Elective Hub?

Elective centres or hubs are dedicated areas, created to focus specifically on surgical procedures within the allocated centre.

They allow the NHS to focus on planned procedures, whilst maintaining the everyday demand on services, particularly during busy periods.

There are more than 90 of these elective surgical centres already operational across the NHS in England.
