Royal Hampshire County Hospital

The first Hampshire County Hospital was founded in the centre of Winchester in 1736. It moved to another city centre site in 1759 and stayed there for more than a century. It moved to its present site in Romsey Road in 1868, with support and advice from Florence Nightingale, and was granted its Royal prefix by Queen Victoria.

Royal Hampshire County Hospital provides a full range of general hospital services including accident and emergency, general and specialist surgery, general medicine, intensive care, rehabilitation, chemotherapy, diagnostic services, out-patient clinics and paediatric care.

The site also houses Florence Portal House (which provides maternity, neonatal, breast screening and some gynaecology services) and an education centre.

Spring 2014 building works

Please be aware that there are currently building works on the Royal Hampshire County Hospital site, while we make improvements to the main entrance to provide more disabled and drop off parking and make it easier for you to access the hospital.

When you arrive on site, please follow the signs to take the temporary route to the main entrance.

Thank you for your patience and co-operation.
