Yeovil Hospital is an acute hospital run by Somerset NHS Foundation Trust. The hospital cares for approximately 185,000 people, primarily in south Somerset, North and West Dorset and parts of Mendip.
The hospital provides a full-range of clinical services, including general medicine, cardiology, general surgery, orthopaedic surgery, trauma and paediatrics, with an emphasis on enhanced recovery – this means the hospital helps people to recover as quickly as possible so they can return home. The hospital also works hard to keep our waiting times as low as possible, meeting and exceeding the standards demanded of us through national targets.
Each year, the hospital sees around 20,000 emergency admissions, 3,500 elective admissions, and 18,000 day cases. More than 40,000 people attend the accident and emergency department each year, the maternity department delivers nearly 2,000 babies, and our intensive care unit looks after many hundreds of people.
