Acute Gynaecology

Services available

  • diagnosis and management of women with post-menopausal bleeding
  • diagnosis and management of women found or suspected to have pelvic masses, such as fibroids and ovarian cysts.

Routine investigations

Patients will usually require an ultrasound scan of the pelvis in order to examine the womb and ovaries. This may be performed with a scan through the abdomen or an internal scan through the vagina using a special, slim probe.
Some patients will require extra procedures such as biopsy samples from inside the womb, smear tests and swabs. 

Making an appointment

Women with suspected gynaecological cancer are seen within 2 weeks. Urgent referrals where cancer is not suspected are normally available within 8 weeks of referral.

Patients should be referred to the service by their GP via The Electronic Referral Service (e-RS), directly from our ultrasound department or by other health professionals. 

We perform most investigations within the unit at the first visit.
