As well as creating the future, we also know the importance of providing really good, safe, and caring services for our patients. Our iCARE ethos sets out the principles which every member of our staff works to, ensuring good communication, attitude, respect and care for the hospital environment. Our patients tell us we’re getting this right, with our Friends and Family Test results consistently above 95 per cent (patients ‘extremely likely’ or ‘likely’ to recommend us to their friends and family).
Yeovil Hospital is a rural hospital based in the market town of Yeovil, serving a population of around 185,000 people in south Somerset and Dorset. We are two hours from London and less than one hour from the nearest Jurassic coastline.
