Rapid access gynaecology clinic

About

We provide rapid access gynaecology services at Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea Hospital and at St Mary’s Hospital. Our clinics are designed to offer prompt assessment for women who have been referred urgently with possible gynaecological cancer, to diagnose or rule out the disease as soon as possible. Both rapid access clinics are managed by teams experienced in diagnostic gynaecology. We offer dedicated ultrasound scan appointments and we aim to provide an ultrasound on the day of your visit. We also offer easy access to MRI and CT scans. In addition, our rapid access clinics have direct access to the outpatient hysteroscopy service for assessment of the endometrium (lining of the uterus/womb). 

Both rapid access clinics are managed by teams experienced in diagnostic gynaecology. For women who are found to have cancer in the rapid access service, the multidisciplinary team in the clinic will explain the diagnosis and treatment options together with providing information, support and a clear plan of the next steps. Women with gynaecological cancer are then cared for by the wider team at the West London Gynaecology Cancer Centre.
