St. Peter’s Hospital is an NHS district general hospital in Chertsey, Surrey, England. It has 400 beds and a wide range of acute care services, including an Accident & Emergency department. It is operated by Ashford and St Peter's Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The hospital buildings are interspersed with a few trees and surrounded by 52 acres (21 ha) of Metropolitan Green Belt much of it former landscaped grounds associated with Botleys Mansion between Woking and Chertsey near junction 11 of the M25 motorway. In straight lines it is 20 miles (32 km) WSW of Charing Cross, Central London and 7 miles (11 km) from Heathrow Airport.

Largest towns in these boroughs are Woking, Staines, Chertsey, Sunbury-on-Thames, Egham and Walton on Thames.

Its first buildings were built to serve casualties in the aftermath of the Second World War and the hospital has been rebuilt, developed and extended to include maternity services, a departmental and clinic area, and a new theatre complex. In the early 1990s, the Duchess of Kent Wing, which includes a Postgraduate Education Centre and modern well-equipped wards, was opened. A new building for the Accident & Emergency, ITU and Orthopaedic Unit opened in the summer of 1998, attached to which since their 2006 construction have been two further wards.[1]
