Leaving a gift in your will to University Hospitals Dorset costs you nothing now, but makes a real and lasting difference to your local hospital and the community we serve.

These are your friends, neighbours, loved ones or people in your community benefiting – even surviving – because of what you have chosen to leave behind.

Donations in wills enable us to enhance the care people receive when they come to the Royal Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch Hospitals, as well as the medical treatment on offer to them.

When you come to make your will, we’d always recommend using a solicitor. If you'd like to include a donation to University Hospitals Dorset NHS Charity you can do so as a fixed amount or as a percentage of your estate.

Please ask your will-writer to include:

  • Our registered charity number: 1057366
  • Our address: University Hospitals Dorset NHS Foundation Trust, Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Castle Lane East, Bournemouth, DORSET, BH7 7DW

Many donors like to include some extra wishes, such as a department or treatment they'd like to support.
