Dorset County Hospital staff DT1

Location: UK » South West » DT
Sector: Health

Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust plans to cut staffing by the equivalent of 230 full-time posts between 2010 and 2012.

The reduction will primarily fall in non-clinical areas, and will be achieved mainly through natural turnover, although some non-clinical compulsory redundancies may be necessary.

The Trust is based at Dorset County Hospital in Dorchester, and is the main provider of acute hospital services to a population of around 210,000 living within Weymouth and Portland, West Dorset, North Dorset and Purbeck.

The Trust also provides renal services for patients throughout Dorset and South Somerset.
