About CHS

Croydon Health Services NHS Trust is a modern healthcare organisation providing community and acute health services across the south London borough.

Our hospitals

Croydon Health Services (CHS) has two hospitals. Our main site, Croydon University Hospital in the north of the borough, is one of the busiest in London. It has a full Accident and Emergency department serving around 400 people a day, a maternity unit, wards and operating theatres.

We offer a full range of in-patient and out-patient clinical services, specialty clinics and a day surgery unit. We also work closely with nearby specialist healthcare units to support patients with more complex conditions.

In addition, Purley War Memorial Hospital brings a number of services to residents in the south of our borough. offering services that do not need an overnight stay, including blood tests, X-rays and other outpatient clinics.

Our community services

We offer a wide range of community health services for all ages from community midwives and health visitors looking after the very young, to district nurses and matrons, caring for older members of the community.

Our community services are a crucial part of the Trust’s work and increasing numbers of people are using them, avoiding the need for hospital visits.

The Trust have also teamed up with local GPs to run a seamless network of urgent care services across the borough, including booked appointments with a GP available seven days a week.

Our aim is to care for people when and where it’s comfortable for them and work closely with our health partners to give our patients a seamless experience.
