Great Western Hospital

The Great Western Hospital is a modern hospital in Swindon providing emergency care, surgery, diagnostics, paediatrics, maternity, outpatient and day case services.

The hospital is located to the south-east of Swindon town centre, close to Junction 15 of the M4 motorway.

The hospital opened in 2002 to replace the services previously provided at the Princess Margaret Hospital in Old Town, Swindon, which had served the town since 1959. It was formally opened by HRH Prince Philip on 28th February 2003. The hospital was one of the first to be built under the Private Finance Initiative at a cost of £148 million with Carillion as the lead contractor.

The Great Western Hospital has all of the facilities one would expect to find in a busy general hospital including an Emergency Department, Delivery Suite, a full range of diagnostics tests such as X-ray, MRI and CT scans, outpatient clinics and about 20 inpatient wards.

Parking is sometimes limited and visitors are advised to leave extra time if you are attending an appointment. All vehicles must display a valid permit or Pay-and-Display ticket. Drop-off areas are provided at some hospital entrances.

Detailed information about the range of services at Great Western Hospital are available on their website, as are all the contact numbers for all the various departments.
