Community hospitals

Our 13 community inpatient wards provide specialist services across Somerset for adult patients who need 24 hour inpatient care for a combination of medical and physical needs.

If you are admitted to one of our community inpatient wards, you may have been transferred from a district general hospital because you still need some hospital care before go home. Your health may have worsened because of a long-term condition or you may need medical, physical or specialist rehabilitation.

Two of our inpatient wards (at Williton and South Petherton community hospitals) provide a countywide stroke rehabilitation service where you may go following a stroke or a brain injury. Our inpatient wards at Bridgwater and West Mendip community hospitals also offer a countywide service for short term rehabilitation as part of our Home First service. Our community inpatient wards can also care for patients at the end of their lives.

Our community inpatient service is provided across Somerset – locations are listed below and you can read more detail in the Wards section of our site.
