Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals Visiting Restrictions - Important COVID-19 Update
To protect patients, visitors and staff, the Trust has taken the decision today (Wednesday 25th March) to immediately restrict visiting to all inpatient areas at Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals until further notice.
This will reduce the number of people passing through the hospital and offer the maximum opportunity to reduce transmission of COVID-19.
In line with these measures, we have closed off access to our disabled car park. Please be assured we have extra measures in place for emergency access and additional staffing assembled in key locations.
Changes to accessing St Peter’s Hospital - from Monday 24th February
As part of the ongoing Transformation works at St Peter’s Hospital, there will be some temporary changes to how the main entrance of the hospital is accessed. As of Monday 24th February, for eight weeks, there will be no access for patient or visitor drop off at the front entrance. If you are being dropped off by car or taxi, please arrange to be dropped in one of the visitor car parks, which are free to park in for the first 20 minutes. The A&E car park is currently dedicated for blue badge parking and has the closest access to the hospital. You can find a map of the car parks here.
The main entrance will also be closed for pedestrian access. Entrance to the hospital from this side can be made via the temporary entrance, approx. 25 yards from the main entrance, which will be signposted. This entrance guides you along a short corridor, past the café to the main reception area.
If you travel by bus or car, your route will not be affected-the bus stop and route into the hospital on foot from these locations will not change, you will just enter through the temporary entrance as opposed to the main entrance. There will still be 20 minutes free drop off in all of the visitor parking areas.
The Patient Transfer Service will run as normal and the necessary arrangements are in place for patients to be dropped at the Duchess of Kent entrance. Access to BMI remains the same.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time.
Barriered car parking (pay on exit) for patients and visitors is located:
- Hazel Car Park
- Abbey Wing (top floor only)

Changes to Patient and Visitor Car Parking at St Peter’s Hospital
Between October 2019 and July 2020 a new multi-deck car park will be built on the site of the current outpatients’ car park at St Peter’s. Parking has been a challenge on the site for many years and the new car park will help us to greatly improve the situation for patients, visitors and staff.
The new car park is just the first step of an exciting three year investment programme to radically transform services and facilities at Ashford and St Peter’s. This will include a new Integrated Assessment Unit to provide urgent and emergency care at St Peter’s, along with improved retail and catering facilities at both sites ... read more

Travelling by Train
The St Peter's healthcare campus is a 20 minute walk from Chertsey train station. Follow the Guildford Road (A320) from the station. You will pass the school and playing fields to the hospital. There is a taxi service by the station and it is on the main 557 and 446 bus route (going towards Woking).
Depending on your route, you may find it more convenient to travel to Woking station as it is has more major connections than Chertsey. Woking is a 25 minute journey from Waterloo. St Peter's is a four mile walk from the station but there are regular buses and taxi companies available by the exit.

The St Peter's healthcare campus is a fair distance (15-20 minute walk) from the local towns of Chertsey, Addlestone and Ottershaw.
Travelling by Cycle
We have a number of cycle routes leading to the St Peter's campus from the nearby villages and towns.
