Overview of services

Liverpool Women’s is dedicated to the health of women and their families. It will come as no surprise then that we specialise in all areas of healthcare associated with the female reproductive system - known as gynaecology. In fact, each year we carry out around 10,000 gynaecological procedures, reflecting the wealth of expertise demonstrated by our team of specialists and staff. This section of the website summarises the main areas of related specialisms and investigations carried out within gynaecology.

More detailed leaflets offering guidance as well as specific condition and procedure information can be found in the patient information area of the website.

  • Adolescent Gynaecology

    At Liverpool Women's Hospital we provide a specialist service to care and support adolescents and young adults with their gynaecological conditions. We recognise that moving from children’s health care to adult health care can be a daunting experience and we aim to make this process as straightforward as possible. We have a dedicated team to welcome young adults to our services and also have close links with our local paediatric gynaecology service at Alder Hey Hospital. Within this service we welcome any young person (aged 16 years and over) with gynaecological conditions and offer specialist treatments.

  • Colposcopy

    A colposcopy is an investigation to examine the vagina and the cervix. It is normally carried out on women with abnormal smear results. The procedure uses a colposcope - a special magnifying instrument – to examine the abnormal cells and the results of their treatment more closely. An outpatient Colposcopy Clinic is held regularly within the hospital at Crown Street.

  • Fertility

    If you have been trying to have a baby and have not conceived, your GP may refer you to Liverpool Women’s Fertility Clinic. You may already have tried different ways of improving fertility such as lifestyle changes or medication before you get referred.

    At your first appointment, you will see either a doctor or specialist nurse. They will ask you questions about your general health and also about how long you have been trying for a baby. You will then offered some investigations using a blood test taken from the female partner between day two and day four of the menstrual cycle and a semen sample taken from the male partner if you are in a heterosexual relationship.

    You will be seen in one of our fertility clinics.

  • Gynaecology oncology

    Liverpool Women’s is well renowned for the diagnosis, treatment and care of gynaecological cancer - known as gynaecology oncology. Our professional team draws together leading consultant gynaecological oncologists, a palliative medicine consultant, specialist nurses, a dietitian, physiotherapists, counsellors and a lymphoedema support nurse as well as other specialist roles - all working together to ensure patients receive individual plans of treatment and care. As well as outpatient services, a joint Outpatient Clinic is held weekly at the Crown Street hospital site.

  • Hysteroscopy

    Hysteroscopy is a procedure that investigates the cause of abnormal bleeding from the uterus. At our outpatient Hysteroscopy Clinic, we diagnose and treat many gynaecological conditions. It is a friendly and relaxed environment for patients and offers the advantage of delivering a modern ‘see and treat’ service without the need for a general anaesthetic.

  • Menopause

    Our specialist weekly Menopause Clinic is an important source of advice and support to patients and referring GPs. We help women to manage the menopause, particular those whose quality of life becomes affected. We also support women who may be at an increased risk of fracture due to the development of post-menopausal osteoporosis and the increased risk of cardiovascular disease and strokes. We care for over 2,000 women a year who attend our clinic for screening, advice and treatment. Women going through the menopause can often be susceptible to osteoporosis. To support the assessment and diagnosis of bone density, we offer direct access to onsite dexa scanning.

  • Miscarriage

    We provide a comprehensive service to investigate and treat recurrent pregnancy loss as well as supporting women throughout their pregnancy. A lot of patients are referred to us from outside Cheshire and Merseyside, from across the North of England and further afield within the UK, reflecting our nationally and internationally recognised expertise in this area. There are several sessions held each week by the specialist Miscarriage Clinic team. Research is carried out in our miscarriage clinic by ourselves and with other organisations, which is why research fellows form part of the clinic’s clinical team.

  • Termination of pregnancy

    Liverpool Women’s provides a confidential and accessible service for women who are considering a termination. We support choice and provide a non-judgemental, non-directional approach in assisting women with their decision.

    As well as supporting and caring for women seeking a termination, we also provide a contraceptive service, advice on sexual health advice and on healthy lifestyle choices. Within the Bedford Clinic, which is open every day of the week, is our aim to provide a safe and caring environment for all women who attend the clinic.

  • Urogynaecology

    Urogynaecology is primarily concerned with the treatment of lower urinary tract and pelvic disorders. It is within urogynaecology that we assess and treat urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse and dysfunction as well as other conditions. Regular clinics are held to diagnose and treat urogynaecology conditions.

  • Urodynamics

    Urodynamics is the investigation of how the bladder and urethra are performing their job of storing and releasing urine. We undertake a series of tests to help to identify and diagnose the cause of continence problems. Clinics are held regularly as part of the diagnosis of urogynaecology conditions.
