Gynaecology is the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the female reproductive system.

What is gynaecology?

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

At Cromwell Hospital

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. 

At Basinghall Clinic

We offer a select range of gynaecology services at Basinghall Clinic – an outpatient diagnostic centre in the City – which include initial consultations and some diagnostic procedures.

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.

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.

Gynaecological cancers
