hope people will enjoy reading about how our staff are living our values and
our achievements during 2010/11. The past year has given us much to be
proud of. We have seen many exciting developments that have helped to
strengthen the trust's reputation as a leading provider of world class care,
whilst recording a financial surplus for the fourth year in a row.
year St George's Hospital was rated the best in the country for stroke
services, and we saw the opening of the hyper-acute-stroke-unit which
provides round the clock access to emergency stroke care for patients from
across southwest London and Surrey. The last 12 months have also seen St
George's Hospital established as the major trauma centre for southwest London,
dealing with around 85 of the most serious and complex injuries from across the
region each month.
October 2010 the trust also became responsible for delivering a range of
specialist community services provided across the borough and in people's homes
following our integration with Community Services Wandsworth. This merger is
giving us the opportunity to redesign services and improve the healthcare
choices available to local people by providing more care in their own homes,
reducing unnecessary admissions to hospital and helping patients leave hospital
as soon as it is safe for them to do so.
