The benefits of having specialist hospitals

NHS Dorset CCG have produced a website – Dorset's Vision – which explains how we are working together to improve healthcare in Dorset.

The future of acute healthcare:

  • Hospitals in East Dorset will have specialist roles
  • Bournemouth will become a Major Emergency Hospital
  • Poole will become a Major Planned Hospital
  • Dorset County Hospital will remain largely unchanged delivering planned and emergency care
