Yeatman Hospital - Sherborne

We are now allowing limited visiting to our inpatient hospital wards and mental health units, in line with current COVID-19 restrictions.

Visiting is only permitted once a patient has been admitted for 72 hours and we know they do not have the virus.

  • Each patient may have one named visitor, per day, for one hour. Visits should be arranged in advance by contacting the ward.
  • Please arrive at the site wearing a face covering, and clean your hands on entering the building.
  • You must use hand sanitiser and put on a surgical mask, gloves and apron before entering the ward area. These will be provided for you on arrival.
  • Please comply with the social distancing guidance, staying two metres away from others wherever possible during your visit. Follow the signs and guidance posters in our buildings.

 Unfortunately, no visitors are allowed for patients who have COVID-19, except for compassionate reasons – for example, to see people receiving end-of-life care.

You must not visit our hospitals if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or are self-isolating because you’ve been in contact with someone who has symptoms.

We understand these restrictions are very difficult, but are necessary to slow the spread of the virus and keep people safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are offering a virtual inpatient visiting service at a number of our sites, where electronic tablets are given to inpatients to keep in contact with relatives and friends via video. 

Outpatient appointments are continuing to take place where appropriate and where it is safe to do so. We would recommend you come alone unless it is with a child or someone that needs additional support. For further information please review how our services are running or contact the service directly. Prior to attending a site, please refer to your appointment letter or read the following guidance for specific details on visiting so you are COVID-19 safe.

Yeatman MIU is temporarily closed, with staff relocated to Shaftesbury and Wimborne MIUs to improve services and extend opening times during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have an ailment or injury which requires urgent care, please call NHS 111 or 01305 762541 and you will be given advice or – if necessary – booked in for a face-to-face appointment at the appropriate site.

Phone NHS 111 if you’re not sure what support you need, or call 999 for anything life threatening as normal.

The Yeatman Hospital was founded in 1886 by the friends of the Reverend Harry Farr Yeatman, a local squire and magistrate who was well known and respected by all his friends and associates. Together with the local community they raised £2,471.1s.6d to establish the hospital.

The Yeatman Hospital delivers a wide range of services on behalf of Dorset HealthCare as well as our acute hospitals. We have a 30 bedded in-patient unit called the Willows which includes the Rowan and Beech wards, each with a purpose built end of life suite. End of life care is one of our specialities and we were very proud to have national accreditation for the standard of our care (Gold Standard Framework 2016).

We also provide rehabilitation services from the in-patient unit and our community hub. We focus on wrapping care around the most vulnerable of our local community, aiming to keep them well for as long as possible in their own home. The hub is made up of the community nursing team, the therapy team, the mental health team and the social work team - all working seamlessly to provide a comprehensive and integrated service.

We provide a wide range of outpatient clinics including orthopaedics, urology, ophthalmology and physiotherapy. The Castleton Day Unit is run by Yeovil District Hospital and delivers minor surgery and procedures.

The Yeatman Hospital is a thriving and busy hospital that offers local services to our local community. We are very proud of our reputation and all the services that we deliver. We are very well supported by our local community just as we were a 150 years ago – the spirit lives on.
