Do I need to see a gynaecologist?

Gynaecology is the area of medicine that deals with the female reproductive system. You should speak to a gynaecologist if you are experiencing any of the below symptoms:

  • Heavy periods
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Intermittent or irregular periods
  • Abdominal or pelvic pain during or between periods
  • Itching or burning
  • Irregular discharge

You’ll find more information on gynaecology and treatments here.

What happens at my appointment?

We have a large team of consultants so you can be certain you’ll be seen and treated by someone who specialises in your symptoms or condition.

We offer fast access to the consultant of your choice, normally within 48 hours. Don’t hesitate to tell us if you’re more comfortable seeing a male or a female specialist.

Together, you and your consultant can decide the best route for you and develop a tailor-made treatment package to achieve optimum results. With significant medical advances made in gynaecology in recent years, many treatments now have minimally invasive alternatives.

Our high infection control standards and excellent nursing care mean you can feel confident in the care and facilities available at our hospital.
