Patients & visitors


B4 is a general surgical and gynaecology ward.

We practice the enhanced recovery programme, which ensures patients are optimised for their procedure which reduces complications following surgery and reduces the length of time spent in hospital.

The ward has a breakfast room overlooking Poole Park and harbour.

We encourage our patients to get up and have breakfast in the breakfast room. Our day room has comfortable chairs and a TV.
