Bank holiday care

“We usually see a large number of visitors to our A & E department during a bank holiday weekend." said Toby Mulvey, emergency services general manager at Poole Hospital. 

"If you have a very serious or life threatening injury we are the best place to come. However, for other injuries or illnesses there are more appropriate local services where you can you can be seen and treated much faster.  This also allows our staff to concentrate on treating very sick patients in a timely manner”.

Getting the right care in the right place over the bank holiday weekend can help you get seen quicker. It can also ease pressure on local emergency departments (A&E) which are already under pressure.
