The Guildford & Waverley Community Gynaecology Service is a primary care lead service delivering gynaecology services to the local population within the Guildford & Waverley CCG area. This service has been commissioned by the CCG and is integrated with the Royal Surrey County Hospital . The service is led clinically Dr Helen Barnes (GPSI) and sees consultants from The Royal Surrey County Hospital (RSCH) working alongside GPs with a special interest (GPSI) to treat women with gynaecological problems.
Conditions seen in the clinic include abnormal / heavy bleeding, pelvic pain, PCOS, vulval pain, post coital bleeding, and hormonal problems such as menopause & premenstrual syndrome. We also see patients for procedures such as difficult coil fittings / coil removals and cervical polyp removals.
Patients visiting the community clinics will see a GP with a special interest in gynaecology (GPSI). The community clinics aim to be a one stop service for diagnosing your condition and providing a management plan. Where possible we undertake investigations including ultrasound and biopsies at the initial appointment, several of our doctors are trained in gynaecological ultrasound.
Please see the FAQ section for information leaflets about what to expect at the appointment, and on many common gynaecological problems.
