Our gynaecology service investigates, diagnoses and treats conditions related to women’s reproductive health and operates across St Mary's and Queen Charlotte's & Chelsea hospitals.
General gynaecology services receive 18,000 new referrals annually with a further 700 new referrals to the West London Gynaecological Cancer Centre (WLGCC) based at Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea Hospital.
We offer consultant-led emergency gynaecology on both sites through the gynaecology emergency rooms (GER) at St Mary's and early pregnancy and gynaecology unit (EPAGU) at Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea.
The gynaecology department also has an active ongoing programme for research and development. The Trust has pioneered research into the management of women with fibroids, working closely in collaboration with the radiology department at St Mary's Hospital.
Conditions and treatments
The Trust’s gynaecology service provides specialist care and clinics in the following areas:
- Disorders of sexual development and adolescent gynaecology
- Emergency gynaecology
- Female genital mutilation (FGM)
- Gynaecological cancer
- Vulvar disease
- Termination of pregnancy
We also offer a growing community gynaecology service, rapid access for urgent gynaecological care, and minimal access surgery for gynaecology.
We perform over 1000 outpatient day case procedures each year, reducing time spent in hospital and allowing patients to recover comfortably at home.
Treatment of polyps, removal of lost IUCDs, hysterscopic sterilisation and fibroid resection (myosure) are routinely offered and the service is now developing further to offer outpatient endometrial ablations.
Imperial College Healthcare Private Care
We also offer private care services at Imperial College Healthcare.
All funds generated by our private care services are reinvested back into the Trust, supporting the development of both NHS and private care for the benefit of all our patients.
