Our trust values
University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust

Clinical Site Team

Our Clinical Site Team supports staff across our hospital to provide a safe environment for patients, relatives and staff members.

The team is made up of senior nurses and advanced nurse practitioners who offer advice and support to the wards and medical and surgical teams within the Trust.

The Clinical Site Team is responsible for managing hospital capacity including:

  • emergency admissions - these may be from GPs or home
  • non-emergency planned admissions - these may be for surgery or monitoring

To ensure the hospital runs efficiently, the Clinical Site Team manages the movement of patients during their stay to ensure they receive the right care as their needs change. This includes:

  • internal transfers within the hospital
  • repatriations to and from other hospitals
  • transfers to other acute hospitals for specialised treatments
  • transfers to rehabilitation wards and community hospitals

Critical Care Outreach Team (CCOT)

The Critical Care Outreach Team is made up of experienced critical care nurses based in the same office as the Clinical Site Team.

Both teams work together caring for acutely unwell patients in our hospital. The teams work closely together when organising admissions and discharges from the High Dependency Unit and ITU.
