One Stop Hysteroscopy Clinics

  • Our one-stop hysteroscopy service sees women for a range of different conditions including:
  • Postmenopausal bleeding ( bleeding which happens more than a year after the change of life)
  • Heavy or irregular periods
  • Bleeding after intercourse
  • Lost coil threads/ need a hormone coil inserted

As well as clinics to investigate these things we also have treatment clinics for:

  • Removal of endometrial (womb) polyps
  • Endometrial ablation (a minor surgical treatment for heavy periods)

 

What will happen in the clinic?

Before you attend the clinic you will be sent a leaflet explaining what to expect and outlining possible procedures which may be carried out during your visit.

There are currently 2 hospitals that have a ‘One Stop’ clinic, Stobhill Ambulatory Care Hospital (SACH) and the Royal Alexandra Hospital (RAH).

When you arrive at SACH you can either check-in at the self-service points in the entrance hall or go straight to Clinic F to check-in there. When you arrive at the RAH you need to go to the reception in the Maternity Building where you will be directed to Clinic B.

Once you have checked in you will be seen by a consultant. You will have a medical history taken and be asked about your symptoms. You will then be shown to your private diagnostic suite. Each suite has a private changing room and separate treatment area. A nurse will help you get ready and explain things to you. Most women will have a vaginal scan carried out, some women will have a hysteroscopy examination (tiny telescope used to check the lining of the womb) and some women will have a sample of tissue taken from the lining of the womb (pipelle biopsy). Your consultant will discuss all of these things with you before carrying them out.

After your examination you can stay in the recovery area for a hot drink or, if you prefer, leave immediately.

You will be given an information leaflet about any tests you have had done and also given a card with the telephone number for the service in case you need more advice following your appointment.

Your consultant will write to you and your GP with the results of your investigations and will arrange any further treatment that is needed.

How do I access this service?

You can be referred by your GP or by a hospital consultant.
