HOSPITAL TYPE: ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY
HELIPAD STATUS: OPERATIONAL
The new helipad at Bournemouth Hospital, which opened in August 2017, replaced the previous helipad which was in a very poor condition and unable to take the state-of-the -art new breed of larger air ambulance helicopters. Planning permission was granted for a new helipad including night time flights. The construction, which was completed in three months, included lighting to allow for emergency landings in the hours of darkness.
The HELP Appeal entirely funded the new helipad with a Grant of £119,000.
