Community Gynaecology

Show_158

Gynaecology is the medical speciality dealing with health of the female reproductive system.

Whereas previously investigations and treatments had to be carried out in hospital now many of those can be done in a community setting. In Hull and East Yorkshire, GPs initiate investigations and refer on to a specialist service as necessary. These are based within the hospital (Women and Children’s Hospital based at Hull Royal Infirmary or the Women’s Unit based at Castle Hill Hospital) or through community gynaecology based at Conifer.

Women can also directly access information and some investigative treatment through Conifer's community gynaecology service. These include management of menopause, pms, period problems, pelvic pain and some urinary problems to name a few.

Further information on specific medical conditions

This section is for women and others interested in their health and care. All information comes from up to date and carefully checked guidance from healthcare professionals some of which is written specifically for the public, others not necessarily so but written in a way that is not too difficult to understand. There is much on the internet on health topics but not all is reputable or based on good scientific evidence.

Two websites which cover many health conditions are NHS Choices and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

The Community Gynaecology service offers:

Advice, treatment, and support on gynaecological problems/issues, specialist menopause care, specialist contraceptive advice and arrangement for the two different methods of female sterilisation. There are specific arrangements for women with any learning disability. 

Termination of pregnancy advice and arrangement is accessed separately by calling 01482 336338 or by dropping in to any sexual health / family planning clinic.

Clinics are held in Conifer (Hull City Centre), The Orchard Centre and Bransholme Health Centre.

What to expect on arrival

This service is by appointment only. All patients should go directly to the clinic reception unless otherwise advised.
