Area we serve

South Thames Retrieval Service (STRS) covers referrals from hospitals in Greater London, south of the river Thames, and from Kent, Surrey and Sussex.

Generally children from these regions requiring intensive care treatment will be taken to one of the three paediatric intensive care units (PICUs) in the region.

However if the child is well known to another PICU or the referring clinician requests a PICU north of the Thames then STRS will deliver to the requested unit if a bed is available.
