Farnham Road Hospital opened in Guildford in December 2015. It is the first of three hospitals we agreed to open following a consultation with the public about our hospitals in 2009.
The hospital was carefully designed to provide personalised care in a respectful and supportive environment to aid recovery. it includes:
- four wards for adults, all with single bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms to provide people with more privacy and dignity
- therapeutic and recreational areas including art and craft rooms, multi-purpose spaces for exercise groups or drama therapy and a fitness room
- private, safe gardens and outside spaces directly accessible from each ward
- public areas including gardens and café for everyone to enjoy
- facilities for people who are brought in by police in need of a place of safety (Section 136)
- a base for our Home Treatment Team who provide intensive support to enable people to be independent within their home environment when they first leave hospital or possibly to prevent a stay in hospital.
A number of old, outdated buildings were demolished to make way for the new hospital. The new building is linked to the original, listed Victorian building through a glazed pedestrian walkway. The main entrance is accessed via Bray Road, which is also the access road to and from the car park.
