East Surrey Hospital is a National Health Service hospital, located in the Whitebushes area of Redhill, in Surrey, England. It is part of the Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.[2]

History[edit]

East Surrey Hospital was opened in 1979[3] as a replacement for a previous Incarnation at Whitepost Hill in Reigate and for Redhill General Hospital, at Earlswood Common, as well as Smallfield Cottage Hospital. The second and final phase of building opened in 1991.

Services[edit]

The hospital, a designated trauma centre, offers a wide range of medical services including 24-hour Accident and Emergency, Intensive Care and High Dependency Units, gynaecology, obstetrics, midwifery and maternity services, paediatrics and diagnostic imaging, as well as the usual general surgery services.[4] As the nearest accident and emergency to London's Gatwick Airport, it is placed on standby when a serious aircraft incident is expected, and regularly receives travellers with diseases not commonly encountered in the UK.
