Patients receive expert gynecologic care from a specialist team of Consultants, GPs and Healthcare Assistants in the same visit. The clinics take place in a variety of accessible locations across the region and are chosen to be easier to get to than hospital.
We treat women and people with a female reproductive system who are aged 16 or older.
Our staff will call you to understand your need. We can then book you in for a face-to-face appointment. Our aim is to examine, diagnose and treat you at the same appointment. We also provide follow up appointments over the phone or in person, and onward referrals as needed.
We will take the time to listen to your condition and what matters to you. We’ll explain how we’lll examine you and offer you the choice to have a registered chaperone present while you are examined. We will explain our diagnosis and provide information and advice about your condition and ways to take care of yourself.
