Poole Hospital Charity, with your help, aims to support the hospital to ensure our patients get treated more quickly and comfortably. Donations are used to purchase innovative equipment, improve facilities and provide finishing touches which complement the existing high quality care, yet are above what the NHS will pay for.

The charity  launched in 2004 and makes a huge difference to the experience of thousands of patients, from funding tiny cots to major refurbishment. All made possible thanks to the generosity and support of the local community. Donations, whatever their size, help us enhance patient care.
