Having lived in London 5 years ago where patients were neglected and made to feel like criminals in a prison I must congratulate the DCH for it's wonderful service.I have had a few stays at the hospital in Dorchester where the care was extremely attentive at all times in every way. The staff are very kind and never failed to help me when needed and to meet a consultant who treats me with respect is amazing! A well deserved accolade, just one question - who are CHKS?
