There are five NHS organisations delivering education services within Dorset: Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Dorset Healthcare University NHS Foundation Trust, Poole Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
