General gynaecology

At Liverpool Women’s, we have a team of consultants and nursing staff that specialise in the management of gynaecology problems. We offer a wide range of services to support the diagnosis and treatment of a range of gynaecology related symptoms. You may have been to see your GP with symptoms relating to menstrual disorders, symptoms of menopause, problems relating to endometriosis, pelvic pain, or if you are suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome or other endocrine related conditions. 

We will always endeavour to ensure you are seen by the right specialist for your condition and this may mean you are seen in one of the following clinics. You can be referred to any of our clinics either by a specialist at another hospital or by your GP.

  • Hysteroscopy clinic

    The relaxed and friendly outpatient Hysteroscopy Clinic is the ideal environment in which to deliver a modern see-and-treat service for many gynaecological conditions. It provides a means of diagnosing and treating many gynaecological conditions covering the entire female genital tract - sometimes at the same time.

    What will happen

    Hysteroscopy is a procedure that investigates the cause of abnormal bleeding. The procedure is performed by a doctor or a nurse and involves an instrument called a speculum being placed into the vagina – similar to the way you have a routine smear test. Then a small telescope is inserted through the cervix into the womb to conduct the examination, a possible tissue biopsy or the removal of polyps. When you attend the clinic you may also be asked to go for an ultrasound scan of the pelvis. After the hysteroscopy clinics you will be have the opportunity to speak to a nurse and doctor to discuss the results and treatment options.
