"Just as it should be!"

About: Dorset County Hospital

My husband has been in this hospital twice in the last month. Firstly as an emergency in the middle of the night and stayed 3 nights, then as a planned admission for surgery with an over night stay. I cannot fault the care given, everyone we encountered was pleasant, polite and helpful. He stayed on lulworth ward for the first admission, then Abbotsbury the second time, both times he received an exemplary level of care, staff went out of their way demonstrating every quality you expect, professionalism, friendliness and they really did care. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much, I believe this to be one of the best hospitals we have ever visited.
