Welcome to the Friends of Dorset County Hospital
We were founded in 1956 to provide comfort and help to patients in the old Dorset County Hospital.
Today’s modern hospital is very different, but our volunteers still do what we were set up to do back in 1956. We provide a service to the patients and visitors, visiting the wards twice daily with our trolley and we have a one stop Shop providing those little extras the patients may need. With the profits from these services we are able to provide facilities and equipment that is not always available through NHS funding.
