The outpatient Urogynaecology Clinic sees women who are experiencing urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse or lower urinary tract disorders. It offers a range of investigations and treatments for overactive bladder, stress urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, interstitial cystitis, recurrent urinary tract infections, perineal trauma, and urinary voiding dysfunction. You can be referred to this clinic from your GP, another hospital consultant or from other continence service providers.
These clinics are held at Liverpool Women’s Crown Street site and occasionally at the Aintree Centre for Women’s Health.
What will happen
- When we receive a referral for this clinic, we will send you an appointment letter with a date and time to attend the clinic. Depending on your condition, we may send you a bladder diary to complete and an instruction letter for you to complete an on-line questionnaire about your symptoms and quality of life, known as an ePAQ questionnaire.
- A consultation consists of a urine test, weight and height assessment, a full medical history and physical examination.
- If you need to have urodynamic investigations, you will be given information before you leave about which tests are required and an appointment will be arranged for you.
- You may also be referred from your initial consultation to the physiotherapy department. Physiotherapy provides assessment, information, education and rehabilitation for your pelvic floor muscles. You can be referred here for your bladder symptoms, prolapse symptoms and for symptoms of pain.
If you need to rearrange or cancel your appointment, please contact our appointments line on 0151 702 4328. They will be able to offer you an alternative appointment that is more convenient for you.
