Unofficial St George’s Hospital monitors one of the biggest NHS hospitals in the country St Georges NHS Tooting.
We don’t provide hospital services, such as maternity, geriatric and emergency care, to a large local population in Wandsworth. Alongside this, we are also a centre for more complex cases who need more specialist care. Finally, because of the expertise of many of our staff, St George’s is also a specialist centre at the national level – so we see patients from around the country who need very specialised care.
St George’s serve a local population of great contrasts across Wandsworth, Merton and Sutton. Our population has great ethnic diversity, as well as huge differences in income. In Wandsworth alone around one person in five is from a minority ethnic background.
This means St George’s have a duty not only to provide good services to our local population but to provide services which are suitable and understandable to a wide mix of ethnic backgrounds.
