Paediatric Department – Children’s Centre – Dorset County Hospital

The Paediatric Department is based in the Children’s Centre in an adjacent building to Dorset County Hospital, Dorchester. We provide and house NHS out-patient health services for children and young people. Dorset County Hospital provides acute/emergency health care via their Accident & Emergency Department, and the children’s ward (Kingfisher Ward). Palliative Care services are also offered, and this is in partnership with Poole Hospital, the local hospices (Naomi House, Julia’s House), and the palliative care team at Southampton hospital. The hospital operates an out of hours answer machine. Access to out-of-hours medical care is via the usual way (GP, 111, 999, Accident and Emergency etc.).
