Gynaecology covers a wide range of different conditions and age
groups, from the very young to the older woman, and each person's
individual circumstances will be different.
We undertake consultation, investigation and treatment of a wide
range of gynaecological conditions including:
Great Western Hospital - ground floor (please see Floor plans).
Once referred by your GP, you will be invited to Women's Health
Outpatients, where following consultation a management plan will be
agreed with you.
We aim to see you in Outpatients as soon as possible, and if
treatment is required this will occur within 18 weeks of
Some gynaecological surgery is performed in our Day Services
Unit, where it is possible to go home the same day.
We also perform many minor procedures in the outpatient setting
(called 'ambulatory gynaecology').
If an overnight stay is required or more complex surgery
undertaken, you will be admitted to Beech Ward.
We provide a one stop clinic for many conditions - for example
for women experiencing abnormal bleeding where scanning,
consultation and surgical procedures under local anaesthetic will
take place in one outpatient visit.
This reduces the anxiety and inconvenience of multiple hospital
visits for our patients.
The service is provided by a Consultant Gynaecologist, Advanced
Nurse Practitioner and supported by a team of nurses.
