Dorset County Hospital

Dorset County Hospital was established in 1991 as part of a long–term project to bring together all the local services for acutely ill patients onto one hospital site. The new hospital, just outside Dorchester town centre, was completed in 1997. We were awarded Foundation Trust status in June 2007. Our busy, modern hospital provides a full range of district general services, including an emergency department, and links with satellite units in five community hospitals. We are the main provider of acute hospital services to a population of around 210,000, living within Weymouth and Portland, West Dorset, North Dorset and Purbeck. We also provide renal services for patients throughout Dorset and South Somerset.
