This service started in January 2018 and is operated by Consultant Gynaecologists from the Whittington Hospital together with local GPs with a special interest in this field. Five clinical sessions run each week across three locations.
Referrals go through an administrative and clinical triage process and then proceed to one of three separate clinical pathways:
Appointment with the Community Gynaecology service
Onward referral to Secondary Care (hospital)
Referral back to the GP with specific condition management advice
Communication with patients is tailored to individual needs using e mail, SMS messaging and telephone whilst our utilisation of the clinical IT system “EMIS Community” helps to ensure a clinically robust service.
The clinical lead for the service is Dr Amita Varma and it is currently provided by Dr Belinda Solomon, Dr Rachel Hines, Dr Alice Bell and consultant Dr Sonu Pathak.
