Bournemouth Hospital Charity and Poole Hospital Charity are thrilled to announce that they are set to come together to create University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity from 1 April.
The newly formed charity will operate across University Hospitals Dorset NHS Trust, hosting annual events, fundraisers and challenges to help support your local hospitals.
University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity’s 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.
Speaking about the news, Debbie Anderson, head of charity, said: ‘The newly formed charity will enable us to support a wider range of fundraising and provide even more support across all three hospital sites.
‘We urge our wonderful supporters of both Poole Hospital Charity and Bournemouth Hospital Charity to continue to support us in our new partnership so we can do even more to improve patient welfare as well as staff wellbeing and support..
The Charity will support all areas of work at the University Hospitals Dorset with supporters still being able to donate to a ward, department, or hospital of their choice across Poole, Royal Bournemouth, or Christchurch.
