It provides acute care for a population of about 180,000, people living in South Somerset, North and West Dorset, and parts of Mendip. The hospital admits around 30,000 inpatients or day cases each year and treats more than 90,000 people in the outpatient appointments. Approximately 40,000 people are treated in Accident and Emergency and 1,300 babies are born in the Maternity Unit each year.
The tower block was built in the 1960s. Since 2000 it has been refurbished with a new coronary care unit, intensive care and private patient ward at a cost of £9.3 million.
In December 2014 the Trust established a 15 year “strategic estate partnership” to fund and manage a new “health campus” with construction companies Interserve and Prime. The £70 million deal will enable the Trust to expand the number of beds for patients with dementia, create a GP practice, a nursing home and a retail pharmacy and to relocate its day surgery service onto the campus.
