Women’s Health Clinics From November 2020

October 27 2020   |   News

Women's Health Clinic Summerfield Healthcare

Free Consultations Available with Experienced Female GPs.

The news regularly shows us stories of women who receive late diagnoses for a number of conditions which results in a huge impact on their health and lives.

It is an ongoing issue and one that we would like to see change.

Free consultations at Women’s Health Clinic

This is why in November and December we are offering a limited number of 15-minute free GP consultations in Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton with female GPs to allow women to sit and talk about any concerns or worries they may have.

This chat gives our female GPs the chance to hear from women about what they are experiencing and allows them to reassure them or, if needed, refer them on for further investigations including blood tests, referral to scan and implant removals.

Shrewsbury clinics

In Shrewsbury, Dr Serena Salamat will be hosting clinics between 10am and 1pm on:

November 17th

December 1st

December 15th

A limited number of appointments will be available free of charge within these clinics.

Wolverhampton clinics

In Wolverhampton, Dr Sundeep Sidhu will be hosting clinics between 9am and 1pm on:

November 6th

November 20th

December 4th

A limited number of appointments will be available free of charge within these clinics.

Access to a female GP

In December last year, a Times investigation revealed that more than one million women in England do not have access to a regular female GP.

The patients included tens of thousands of elderly women who often prefer to see a female doctor.

The report said that practices could book female locums to see them for one-off appointments but that they were expensive and patients said they had faced hostility from staff when they requested this or complained.

Summerfield Healthcare

We understand that many women would prefer to discuss certain issues with a female doctor, including the menopause, cervical smears, hormones and more, and we hold regular Women’s Health clinics with a female GP at both our Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton sites.

To book your free consultation with our female GP please call 0333 9000 010 or book below.
