Colposcopy is the examination of the cervix using a specially designed microscope and special dyes. The technique is used to investigate women who have had abnormal smears, bleeding after intercourse or occasionally vulval diseases.
Urinary incontinence means involuntary passing of urine. It can range from a small 'dribble' now and then, to large floods of urine. Treatment ranges from bladder training, drugs and surgery.
Recurrent thrush, vaginal irritation & discharge are common presenting symptoms. Many cases of vaginal irritation and discharge are not caused by sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) but still require treatment.

We aim to provide a one-to-one care throughout pregnancy and delivery to meet the needs and expectation of women who wish to have a personal and same consultant / midwife care, and those with a history of obstetric or gynaecological problems. Our consultations are characterised by accurate and digestible information related to the progress and development of the pregnancy.
Philosophy of care
The care of each woman is tailored to her specific needs and that of her baby using the most up to date and best available evidence. This is achieved by a thorough understanding of her background history and the development of a care plan at the beginning of her pregnancy.
Our consultants have particular expertise in the management of very high risk and complex pregnancies, whilst supporting and promoting normality in the low risk cases.
