Our surgical services form part of our Planned Care Centre at Queen Mary’s Hospital, which are located on the 4th floor in the Main Building and offer patients planned routine surgery in a range of general surgical procedures, including:

  • Breast Surgery
  • Colorectal Surgery
  • Endocrine Surgery
  • Fistula treatment with Laser (FILAC)
  • Gallstones
  • Hepatology
  • Hernias
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Lower GI (medical) excluding IBD
  • Lumps and Bumps
  • Oncology (established diagnosis)
  • Upper GI including Dyspepsia
  • Upper GI Surgery.

Thanks to advances in medical technology, many procedures are now performed on a day-case basis designed to return patients home on the same day.

This service is operating as a fully staffed 5-day theatre service and 7-day ward area.

Our Planned Care Centre has 32 surgical beds across two ward areas. Surgery registration takes place in our Surgical Admissions Lounge in Mottingham Ward and after surgery patients return to Avery Hill Ward, located in the Planned Care Centre on the 4th floor in the Main Building.
