Overview: The gynaecology clinic offers a range of services to women with gynaecological disorders such as menstruation problems, pelvic pain, vaginal prolapse, urinary incontinence, infertility, vulal conditions and gynaecological cancers. 
Clinic times: Clinic times vary but usually there is a gynaecology clinic available most days. 
There is no walk-in clinic.
What to expect at your appointment: Initially a nurse may record some simple observations such as your blood pressure, weight and test a urine sample (if you have been instructed to bring this). When you see the doctor you will be asked to describe the problem for which you have been referred and then a vaginal and abdominal examination will be carried out if needed to give more information about your gynaecological problem. Any physical examinations are conducted with a chaperone present and you are, of course, welcome to be accompanied during your consultation by a family member or friend. If more tests are needed such as ultrasound scans or blood tests the doctor will explain your condition and the treatment options that are available. The outcome of your consultation is usually communicated to your GP in writing. Where available we aim to provide written information leaflets to help you understand your gynaecological condition.  
When and where to get results of any tests: At your appointment you will be told how and when any results will be shared with you. Results are usually communicated to you by your clinic doctor either in writing or occasionally by telephone.
