Women’s Health Unit

Over 17,000 women each year visit the Women’s Health Unit for treatment ranging from breast and gynaecology surgery to colposcopy and hormone replacement clinics.

Our patients say that the level of care they receive is first class. They also say that their experience could have been better is treatment was provided all in one place, in less cramped conditions and with greater privacy and dignity.

The Unit is no longer suitable for treating our patients. Our staff provide first class care but they want to provide it in a world class unit. That’s why the Jigsaw Appeal for Women aims to raise £1.5m to transform the Women’s Health Unit. To find out how you can help visit the Bournemouth Hospital charity website.
