7 June 2021

We are currently running an appointment-led vaccination service for those who are eligible at Shirley House, on Hospital Way within Croydon University Hospital. To get a vaccine you must be within the Government's current eligibility criteria. You must bring photographic ID with you when you visit and a workplace ID if you are an NHS or health and care worker.

The easiest way to arrange a vaccination is through the national booking service which can be accessed at www.nhs.uk/covid-vaccination. The system allows patients to choose a time slot and location that suits them.

Anyone unable to book online can call 119 free of charge, anytime between 7am and 11pm seven days a week.

If a suitable and convenient slot is not available people can also call their GP practice.

If you are not in one of the current priority groups, you should wait to be contacted by your GP or community clinic, who will be in touch when your it is your turn to get the vaccine.

All vaccination hubs are following government priority lists so you will be contacted in due course.

In the spotlight

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all in so many ways. We wanted to show you what we've been through together to care for Croydon. This is Our COVID Story.

Our Current CQC Rating

CQC summary Following the latest inspection the CQC the Trust remains at “requires improvement.”

The CQC most recently inspected our medical care and community services in July 2018 and has given both overall ratings of “requires improvement”. All our services were rated as “good” on caring and both medical care and community health services for adults were also judged “good” on being effective.

When combined with the previous inspection last year, the latest report also means seven out of the nine of the core services inspected at Croydon University Hospital are now rated as “good”.

Our current CQC rating

Graphic showing CQC rating



The Care Quality Commission (CQC) in February 2018 rated three of out of four core services at Croydon Health Services NHS Trust as ‘Good’ following a routine inspection.

The unannounced inspection carried out during October and November 2017 focused on surgery, critical care, end of life care and outpatients at both Croydon University Hospital and Purley War Memorial Hospital. 

The inspectors found there had been improvements in surgery, end of life care and outpatients, raising the rating from ‘Requires Improvement’ to ‘Good’ in all three services. The CQC rated critical care as “Requires Improvement.”

Overall the Trust was rated as ‘Requires Improvement’ – the same as its last inspection in June 2015.
