Overview

Castletown Ward, Portland Hospital is a 16-bedded ward caring predominantly for elderly people requiring rehabilitation, palliative care, stroke and dementia care.  However, we have the capacity to admit patients from the age of 18 .  We have a multidisciplinary team on the ward, including nursing staff, physiotherapy and occupational therapy staff.

We accept direct GP admissions and patients who require IV therapy as day care and we also accept admissions from Dorset County Hospital and sometimes further afield in certain circumstances.
