Our hospital in the heart of your community

Poole Hospital Charity support all wards, departments and services across Poole Hospital.

Poole Hospital is an acute general hospital, which employs nearly 4,000 staff including our dedicated army of volunteers.

We provide our community with a 24-hour major accident and emergency department and are the designated trauma unit for east Dorset, serving a population of around 500,000 people. 

In addition, our flagship Dorset Cancer Centre provides medical and clinical oncology services for the whole of Dorset, serving a total population of over 750,000.

Poole Hospital Charity supports 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 provides.

The charity  is proud to make a difference to the experience of thousands of patients. From funding tiny cots to major refurbishments, all made possible thanks to the generosity and support of the local community. Donations, whatever their size, help us enhance patient care.
