Beyond shocking! Sat in A&E for over 5 hours with my little boy! Offered him pain relief, NONE brought, he’s 11! About 100 people in there! Staff rude AF! No clue at all, complaint being made! Only decent thing was the security guard who didn’t expect me to pay over £8 for parking! Never again will I visit this shambles of a hospital!

CQC report – Safe ‘Requires Improvement’. My Father, as a Porter at Poole Hospital used to describe it as the ‘Gold’ Standard of care and I’m sad to say that it falls far short of that now. The permanent Nursing Staff are truly fantastic and their great asset, however, the Consultants do not follow through with the basics of care.

Amazing staff and care of our 5 month old that needed oxygen and nebuliser treatment for a chest infection. What would make this place perfect is temperature control in the rooms which seem to be able to maintain at least 25 degrees even with windows open and fans on. Also a larger car park.

I have always been well looked after on the few occasions I have been an inpatient. A&E can be very busy due to Government cuts. If one is an urgent case, they are marvelous. Poole has to remain the acute hospital as RBH is on the other side of Bournemouth and will result in poor outcomes for many people.
