The Trust provides a full range of services, with particular emphasis on enhancing patient recovery times through keyhole techniques and day surgery procedures.

At Yeovil District Hospital we promise to treat all patients as Individuals and to provide clear and effective Communication and an open, polite and professional Attitude at all times; Respect for patients, carers and staff and a clean, safe and friendly Environment – this is our iCARE promise.

We provide acute care for a population of about 185,000 mostly in south Somerset, North and West Dorset and parts of Mendip. The hospital has 345 beds and a private patients’ wing.

Each year, we see around 20,000 emergency admissions, 3,500 elective admissions, and 18,000 day cases.

Yeovil District Hospital has a long-established and excellent reputation for the high quality of its research activity. Our achievements in research have raised the profile of YDH, attracting both national and international interest, and have demonstrated that a district general hospital can make a major contribution to the national research agenda. Yeovil District Hospital is the second best small acute trust in the country when it comes to its research activities and it has recently achieved the second highest uptake in the world in a stroke trial.
