Welcome to SWLEOC
Welcome to the South West Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC), based at Epsom Hospital. SWLEOC is an NHS treatment centre providing regional elective orthopaedic surgery services.
Since being opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 2004, SWLEOC has gained a reputation as a centre of excellence, treating more than 5,000 patients a year with excellent outcomes, low complication rates and high patient satisfaction.
SWLEOC is established by the four South West London Acute Trusts to deliver strategic change in the delivery of planned orthopaedic care.
With fewer patients now requiring hospital admission and intensive care treatment for Covid-19, the situation in our local area has improved. We are pleased to report that we have resumed admitting patients for elective surgery on 15th March 2021.
