Frimley Park Hospital is a large, 938-bed general hospital in Frimley, Surrey. It is managed by Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, and houses a private wing.


Frimley Park Hospital was opened to provide a full range of acute services to patients North East Hampshire and West Surrey in 1974.[1] After Cambridge Military Hospital in Aldershot closed in 1996, the hospital was selected by the Ministry of Defence to host one of the Ministry of Defence Hospital Units.[2]

The hospital was built with reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete beams which was the subject of a safety alert in 2019. This may lead to the rebuilding of the hospital as a cheaper option than replacing the beams.[3] In 2022 it was announced that operating theatres would be taken out of use to allow for urgent work on their roofs. This would reduce the capacity for operations by around 2,000. Emergency work would also affect its ability to admit elective patients to beds. The reinforcement works, which are temporary, would cost £8.1 million in 2022-23, and around £10 million in subsequent years. [4]
