If you would like to know more about the future of Poole Hospital and the Royal Bournemouth Hospital you can now view video animation films.
Following the reorganisation of NHS services across Dorset, the hospitals now come under the umbrella of University Hospitals Dorset.
The films have been narrated by Dr Isabel Smith, consultant anaesthetist and medical director for strategy and transformation at University Hospitals Dorset. They give an insight into the development of Poole Hospital’s new theatres complex and the development of the new Maternity, Children’s, Emergency and Critical Care Unit at Royal Bournemouth Hospital.
Poole Hospital is to become the main centre for planned treatment in east Dorset, whilst the Royal Bournemouth Hospital will become the centre for emergency care. Debbie Fleming, chief executive said, “We hope these animations provide an easy reference guide on the major construction work about to begin across our hospital sites.
“Our clinicians have been at the forefront in developing these plans, and we are delighted to introduce Dr Isabel Smith, our medical director for strategy and transformation, who explains these changes so clearly.
“We are ready to build a future that will provide better services and deliver improved outcomes for the thousands of patients that we care for, as we unleash the ambitions of our incredible teams.”
Dr Isabel Smith, consultant anaesthetist and medical director for strategy and transformation, added, “I hope these videos highlight the bright future for both Poole and the Royal Bournemouth Hospital.
“However, the investment is not just in buildings, it will be an investment in the future quality of care our organisation can offer to the patients of Dorset and beyond.”
The total programme of works will run up to 2026 and form part of the £250m investment in University Hospitals Dorset.
