The charity is committed to supporting Blandford Community Hospital in delivering excellent standards of treatment and care, and assisting health related projects and groups in our community.
Our aim is to make a significant difference to the reach and scale of the services available to our community in and around Blandford. We do this by supporting the Hospital clinical staff in any way we are able but especially by providing funds for capital and infrastructure projects that are outside the affordability of the NHS.
Blandford Community Hospital is part of Dorset HealthCare, who are responsible for all community hospitals along with mental health services and many physical health services. They provide healthcare across Dorset at over 300 sites. As a Foundation Trust, they have a Council of Governors who are elected to represent the views and interests of the public, patients and staff as well as carers and other stakeholders.
You can influence the decisions made about the NHS in Dorset by becoming a Member of Dorset HealthCare, and making contact with your local Governor. Anyone over the age of 11 years is welcome, it’s free and without obligation.
Details about the Council of Governors and their contact details can be found at Dorset HealthCare website, http://www.dorsethealthcare.nhs.uk
It takes just a few minutes to complete an online membership form, or complete a printed form when visiting one of their services (if you can’t find one, just ask).
