What We Do

Our hospital is located in South Wiltshire and provides a wide range of services including:

  • Emergency and planned inpatient services
  • Day case services
  • Outpatient services
  • Women & Newborn and paediatric services, including a brand new birthing centre here at SDH.
  • Diagnostic and therapeutic services
  • Specialist services such as rehabilitation, burns, plastic surgery and cleft lip and palate, which extend to a much wider population of more than three million people.

Our District General Hospital is part of the Bath, North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Integrated Care Board (BSW ICB) and delivers a broad range of clinical care to approximately 270,000 people in Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire.

Our hospital also includes the Duke of Cornwall Spinal Treatment Centre, a purpose built 45 bed unit, which specialises in caring for people who have spinal cord injury. It serves a population of 11 million covering an area across most of southern England.

We are also committed to serving and supporting our local Armed Forces community, our patients, our staff and their families. Our established and growing links to the Armed Forces and the veteran community are a priority for the hospital and are supported by our large number of serving and veteran staff, and our partnerships with the military communities we serve.

At 츣 District Hospital we encourage and support our Trust leaders and colleagues to think differently about disability and take action to improve how we recruit, retain and develop disabled people and those with health conditions

A local anchor institution

As the largest employer and anchor institution in South Wiltshire, embedded within our vibrant local community, we have the opportunity to make a difference to the health of our population beyond the provision of high quality patient care. We are continually modernising and diversifying our hospital so that we can make a broader contribution to our population health, reduce our carbon footprint to net zero by 2040and promote economic development in and around south Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire.
