Westminster Memorial Hospital - Shaftesbury

Information on visiting sites and inpatient wards

The Dowager Marchioness of Westminster gave the land for the Hospital in 1870 and the hospital was opened in 1874 in memory of her husband the Marquis of Westminster, who owned many estates in and around Shaftesbury.

Since then it has had many updates and improvements that bring us up to the present day. But one thing remains unchanged – the spectacular views from the hospital across the Blackmore Vale, which is medicine in itself.

The hospital is in the heart of this rural community and is very much loved and valued by local people. We pride ourselves on our commitment to our patients and, although a small hospital, we strive to ensure we are responsive to patients’ needs, whether it’s end of life care or rehabilitation.

Minor injuries unit

If you require urgent care, please call 111 or go online for an assessment. This help us to provide the right support/treatment as quickly as possible, and could save you an unnecessary journey.

If you turn up unannounced at the MIU, you will be assessed but could be directed elsewhere or given an appointment later that day or the next.
