Hundreds are expected to protest against the plans to make Royal Bournemouth Hospital the county’s major emergency centre.
Along with the A&E, Poole Hospital’s maternity and paediatric services would be moved to Bournemouth. Poole Hospital would continue to provide major planned care, such as low risk, planned surgeries.
Two protests will take place, one in Poole at Falkland Square from 10am and at Wimborne Library, Eastbrook Row.
Dorset currently has three major hospitals – Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Poole Hospital and Dorset County Hospital.
