What does University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity do?

On 1 April 2021, Bournemouth Hospital Charity and Poole Hospital Charity came together to create University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity.

The newly formed charity operates across University Hospitals Dorset NHS Trust, hosting annual events, fundraisers and challenges to help support your local hospitals.

Our mission is: to enhance the care and treatment of patients accessing NHS services at Poole, Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals by fundraising to provide enhanced facilities, state of the art equipment and support NHS staff health, wellbeing and development.

We aim to make a difference to every patient and every condition that is treated at our hospitals above and beyond that which can be provided through NHS funding.

Through our work alongside the community, our corporate partners and the many other supporters and volunteers who give their money and time to us, we make a real difference to our patients, their families and our staff.

We support all areas of work at the University Hospitals Dorset and you are able to donate to a department, or hospital of your choice across Poole, Royal Bournemouth, or Christchurch. Or you can give to our University Hospitals Dorset general fund so we can meet needs as they arise.Just let us know when you’re making your donation where you would like it to go.

With your support, we can continue to help our hospitals to go above and beyond.
