Gynaecology is the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the female reproductive system.
What is gynaecology?
Gynaecology is the branch of medicine that deals with the health of the female reproductive system. At Cromwell Hospital, our private gynaecologists in London are dedicated to providing exceptional care for women of all ages.
With years of experience and training at London's top teaching hospitals, our consultant gynaecologists are leaders in their field and are passionate about helping women maintain optimal health.
About our gynaecology service
Our services include health screening programmes, infertility treatment, surgical treatment of incontinence and pelvic prolapse, family planning, endometriosis, and menopause management, overseen by our expert private gynaecologists.
We provide a comprehensive diagnostic service for all gynaecological conditions, using the latest technology and an on-site laboratory for fast, accurate test results. In most cases we can offer same day diagnostic tests, including ultrasound, ensuring prompt and precise care
from our dedicated team of private gynaecologists in London.
We provide appointments at both Cromwell Hospital and Basinghall Clinic, our outpatient diagnostic centre in the City, where you can receive compassionate, tailored care from a private gynaecologist.
We provide prompt and efficient investigations for a range of different gynaecological symptoms and conditions, including:
- a cervical smear abnormality
- abnormal bleeding, such as heavy or irregular periods, bleeding between periods, bleeding after sex, bleeding with hormone replacement therapy (HRT), or post-menopausal bleeding
- a clinical abnormality of your cervix, vulva, or vagina
- pelvic pain, including period and premenstrual pains
- feeling constantly bloated or discomfort in your tummy area
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms or have received an abnormal smear result, you can self-refer to the clinic or be referred by your GP.
You don’t need private health insurance and we offer a range of flexible payment options.
Depending on your symptoms and reason for referral, you may receive some of the following diagnostics at your appointment or shortly after:
- initial consultation and smear test
- ultrasound scan, to assess your uterus and ovaries
- colposcopy , to assess your cervix (the lower part of your womb)
- endometrial biopsy, to collect a sample of the lining of the womb
- cervical biopsy, to collect tissue from the cervix
- vulval biopsy, to collect tissue from the vulval area
Your tests will be analysed at our on-site laboratory. You will then have a follow-up consultation with your gynaecologist to discuss your test results and any ongoing treatment options.
Our on-site diagnostic services include:
- bladder studies
- cervical screening
- MRI scans
- menopause blood profiling
- ultrasound for testing for conditions such as menopause, HIV, sexually transmitted diseases

International Centre for Endometriosis
At Cromwell Hospital’s International Centre for Endometriosis, our aim is to provide patients with rapid access to a diagnosis, and a tailored and comprehensive treatment plan to set them on a path to recovery.
Adolescent endometriosis service
Endometriosis can have a significant adverse impact on someone’s life, especially in young adolescents. They are going through an important time in their lives at school and with their friends, but ongoing pelvic pains and period pains can lead to missing educational, social, and sports activity. This situation has shown to have long term implications in a child’s achievements in the future.
Cromwell Hospital is now offering a bespoke service for young women who have suspected endometriosis, offering personalised care, tailored to their needs.
The International Centre for Endometriosis at Cromwell Hospital is a leading institute providing high quality multidisciplinary care for these patients and is proud to extend its services to young adolescent patients suffering with this problem.
Mr Amer Raza, lead consultant for endometriosis, has established a pioneering multidisciplinary team including gynaecologist Miss Maya Al-Memar, colorectal surgeon Mr Valerio Celentano, and consultant gastroenterologist Dr Assad Butt alongside a nutritionist, psychotherapist, and physiotherapist team.
Our experienced gynaecologists work as part of multidisciplinary teams to treat cancer and complex cases. If you receive a diagnosis for a gynaecological cancer, you will be supported every step of the way by your consultant and members of your healthcare team.
We have some of the best gynaecology cancer consultants and treatment facilities available. Depending on your diagnosis and needs, the following treatments may be recommended to you:
