"Excellent service"

About: Dorset County Hospital

I recently was seen by a Consultant in the orthopaedic out patient department and was diagnosed with a serious condition. I was treated with respect and dignity but importantly given the time to ask questions and given answers. the department was very clean and a bright environment and staff were friendly and polite. .

I would also like to add that further diagnostic investigations in radiology were efficient and staff so very kind and made me feel relaxed. A big thank you. Keep up the hard work.
