Approval given for new operating theatres at Poole Hospital

26 September 2019

Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council has approved the planning application for the expansion of operating theatres at Poole Hospital, which will create a state of the art facility and bring substantial benefits to patients, including replacing the day theatres which date back to the 1960s, once implemented

The improvements will serve patients currently using services as they are now, as well as ensuring they meet the future needs of Poole Hospital’s designation as the county’s major planned care hospital. Patients and staff will experience much more space and better layouts, which will mean more patients can be cared for, and with greater privacy and dignity.

Thanks to everyone who supported the application to the council.

The council is also considering the planning application for Royal Bournemouth Hospital, which includes improvements to transport and access to the hospital, and the creation of expanded Emergency Department and critical care services, and new maternity and paediatric departments.
