Ipswich Hospital

Clinics are by appointment only.  Your GP can refer you to the gynaecology service.

When you see the doctor you will be asked to describe the problem for which you have been referred. A vaginal and abdominal examination may be carried out to give more information about your gynaecological problem. Any physical examinations are conducted with a chaperone present and you are, of course, welcome to bring a family member or friend to your appointment. We may send you for more tests such as ultrasound scans or blood tests. The doctor will explain your condition and the treatment options that are available.
