Dorset to cut community services

22nd December 2011

Dorset County Hospitals Foundation Trust has announced that it is to stop providing services in community hospitals operated by Dorset Healthcare University Foundation Trust.

It currently provides services including outpatient clinics, surgery and radiology in six of the hospitals run by the community and mental health provider but is has become concerned that this costs an additional £2.5m and has given Dorset Healthcare six months’ notice on the contract for the space. The decision to end the contract is in response to a 3% reduction in activity commissioned by NHS Dorset.
