Poole Hospital

Poole Hospital is a 24 hour acute general hospital situated on Longfleet Road in Poole, approximately 0.5 miles from the town centre. It is the major trauma centre for East Dorset and provides a range of district hospital care for the 270,000 people living in Poole, East Dorset and Purbeck. It also provides a number of core services such as child health and maternity for a wider catchment area, including Bournemouth and Christchurch, and some specialist services, such as oral surgery and neurological care, for the whole of Dorset. The Dorset Cancer Centre – which provides care to people with cancer from across the county – is based at Poole Hospital.
