Burns & Plastics Unit (Odstock Ward)

The Burns and Plastics Unit (Odstock Ward) provides emergency plastic surgery, treatment for burns, trauma and complex microsurgical burns reconstruction. The Unit serves a population of four million people from the Channel Islands, all along the south coast and up to Basingstoke. The Unit is integrated with the major trauma unit at Southampton General Hospital.
