What conditions do we treat?

We treat a range of gynaecological conditions. Referrals are usually made via GPs to consultants and their teams and cover the following concerns:

  • heavy periods
  • pelvic pain
  • fertility problems
  • pregnancy loss/ miscarriage
  • menopause
  • urinary problems
  • sexual health issues
  • any other gynaecological concerns


What services do we provide?

We provide a range of specialist clinics and services including:

  • Early Pregnancy Unit – we provide specialist scanning and support for women experiencing problems in early pregnancy.
  • Hysteroscopy – this 15 to 20 minute procedure examines the lining of the womb using a thin, lighted tube called a hysterocope
  • Urodynamics – we provide investigations using physical measurements such as urine pressure and flow rate to assess the bladder and urethra
  • Colopscopy – this procedure is an advanced smear examination using specialised instruments to give an illuminated, magnified view of the cervix and internal tissues. Biopsies can also be taken during this examination.
  • Minimal Access or ‘Keyhole’ surgery – this is used in many gynaecological operations as it is less invasive, reduces post-operative pain and allows quicker recovery.
