COMPETITION COMMISSION

Drop-In session - Seeking views on Bournemouth/Poole hospitals merger

The Competition Commission (CC) is currently investigating the proposed merger between The Royal Bournemouth & Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

In a provisional report published in July, the CC expressed concern that the merger could reduce choice for some local patients across a large number of services provided by both Trusts.

The CC now has to decide whether these concerns might be outweighed by the patient benefits the Trusts have put forward regarding the merger.

The views of local residents are important to us so we will be holding a drop-in session at Parkstone Baptist Church Hall, 10 Loch Road, Poole, BH14 9QX on 5 September at 10.30am to 3.30pm.

We're keen to hear from you so do please pop in at anytime on this day and you can talk to one of the investigating team - in confidence if you wish.

For further information on our inquiry, including our provisional findings report and the benefits put forward to us by the Trusts, please see:
