This is part of the Southampton University Hospitals NHS Trust. SGH is a 1300 bed hospital providing routine and emergency medical services to a local population of approximately 450,000 people. The hospital is a designated regional cancer centre and provides a wide range of specialist services not usually found in smaller district general hospitals including neurosurgery, cardiac surgery and upper abdominal cancer surgery (liver, pancreas, biliary, stomach and gullet cancers). It is currently rated as a high performing three star NHS trust. The general surgical department is a 130 bed unit comprising six wards and the surgical high dependency unit. Ward E8 is our dedicated Upper Gastro-Intestinal and Hepatobiliary pancreatic surgical ward, where we manage most of our patients having major upper abdominal surgery. This is a well motivated ward with excellent levels of specialist skills and experience among the nursing staff. The nurses and doctors on this unit work as a close team with a high level of senior, nursing and surgical input for patients requiring specialist care.
