About the Trust
The Hospital Trust gained Foundation status on 1st April 2005, following three consecutive years of being rated as a three star performing trust. The Foundation Trust includes the Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals, which are located about three miles apart on the south coast, and a Sterile Supply Department in Poole.
The hospitals provide health care for the residents of Bournemouth, Christchurch, East Dorset and part of the New Forest with a total population of around 550,000, which rises during the summer months. Some specialist services cover a wider catchment area, including Poole, the Purbecks and South Wiltshire.
The hospitals are close to the New Forest in the east and the Jurassic coastline in the west with most of the catchment population covered by three primary care trusts (PCTs):
- NHS Dorset
- NHS Bournemouth and Poole
- NHS Hampshire
The Royal Bournemouth Hospital
The Royal Bournemouth Hospital is an acute hospital site which opened in 1992. It is recognised locally by its blue roof and is located on a large green field site close to the main roads that link with the New Forest, Southampton, Salisbury, Winchester, Christchurch and Poole.
The hospital has a 24-hour Emergency Department, which sees around 60,000 patients a year, and a large Day of Surgery Admissions Unit (the Sandbourne Suite). A purpose built Ophthalmic Unit is located on site as well as a state-of-the-art Cardiology Service and the award winning Derwent Unit (an orthopaedic service providing hip and knee replacements).
The Royal Bournemouth Hospital also provides district-wide services for cardiac interventions, vascular surgery and urology. Outpatient clinics are provided for oral surgery, paediatrics, plastic surgery, ENT (ears, nose and throat), cardiothoracic and neurology.
Christchurch Hospital provides a dynamic environment for rehabilitation and a range of outpatient services. An all-age rehabilitation service has been developed, particularly in the award winning, newly refurbished Day Hospital. Most patients are elderly, reflecting the local population. There is an excellent infrastructure to support rehabilitation with superb physiotherapy and occupational therapy facilities.
Outpatient clinics have expanded over recent years and include gastroenterology, breast surgery, oncology and Medicine for the Elderly. Dermatology and rheumatology outpatient services are also provided at Christchurch Hospital together with phlebotomy (blood taking) services, diagnostic services and the Macmillan Unit (palliative care).
