opened the new Minor Injuries Unit last year which is nurse-led and offers a
variety of services and treatments for minor ailments and minor injuries.
Hospital has two in-patient wards – Ryeberry and Langdon – caring predominantly
for patients over 65 for rehabilitation from the local acute hospitals, as well
as end of life care.
Hub is a relatively new venture bringing together health and social care, local
GPs and community services. This model is being replicated in other areas
and is seen as innovative nationally.
Hospital would not be able to provide many of the above services without the
support of the Bridport Hospital League of Friends. Over the years they have
purchased specialist equipment for departments and continue to provide help for
patients as well as run the busy League of Friends Coffee Shop in the hospital
Our activities supplement the service given by Bridport Community Hospital for patients and staff by provision of facilities and equipment which fall outside the NHS funding priorities. To raise funds and receive gifts, donations and legacies. To recruit voluntary workers for the coffee shop and trolley service to the wards.Website: http://www.bchlof.org/home
