Gynaecology

About

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.
