Hospitals & Helipads

Providing a rapid transfer to the 'right' facility is a key factor in a patient's survival and recovery rate.  Although we fly regularly to many local hospitals, there is often a case to transfer a patient to a specialist unit or one of the Major Trauma Centres in the South West.  These local and specialist hospitals are listed below:

LOCAL HOSPITAL

Dorset County Hospital– Dorchester*

Musgrove Park Hospital– Taunton*

Poole Hospital

Royal Bournemouth General Hospital*

Royal Devon & Exeter – Exeter*

Royal United Hospital – Bath*

Salisbury District Hospital

Yeovil District Hospital

* These hospitals have a helicopter landing site adjacent to A&E.  Others require a vehicle transfer from a local landing site.
