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


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]

Famous patients

The hospital was the birthplace of the two children of the Earl and Countess of Wessex: Lady Louise Windsor[3] and James, Viscount Severn,[4] as well as of Rugby Union World Cup winner Jonny Wilkinson[5] and the twins of Chris Evans.[6] The actor Derrick De Marney died at the hospital in 1978,[7] as did actor and comedian Arthur English in 1995.[8]


After an inspection in August 2015 the hospital was one of only three in England rated "outstanding" by the Care Quality Commission.[9]
