Hook Consultant Lead Gynaecology Clinic
If your GP decides that you need to see a gynaecological consultant, you can now choose to be seen at Hook Surgery at our Gynaecology Clinic. If this is appropriate your GP will write a referral letter for you following your consultation.
This clinic is designed to be clinically effective with a personal service in a friendly, professional and discrete environment. It is a ‘one-stop shop’ where there will be an ultra-sound scanner available at the appointment plus a consultant able to interpret the results.
The appointments will be at Hook Surgery on Thursday evenings so that busy women with many commitments will find it more convenient to attend than at a clinic run during the day.
The patient will be greeted by a receptionist who will explain how the appointment will proceed. There will be a Health Care Assistant to measure BMI and blood pressure and other basic tests if this information is needed by the consultant. The patient will then see the sonographer for an ultrasound scan if that is appropriate for the patient’s condition.
After the scan, the patient will be seen by a gynaecological consultant. There will also be a GP with specialist knowledge at the clinic who will be seeing some patients. A female chaperone will be at the clinic at all times to assist where appropriate
