We understand the value of being able to access quality women’s health advice from a female GP. Our Private GP appointments are available on an affordable basis, with no need for insurance.
With a 30-minute appointment, you will have the opportunity to discuss all of your health concerns in detail, ask questions and be examined in a respected and unhurried manner.
We offer a complete service and are able to complete further blood tests and investigations, usually on the same day. If you need to be referred for specialist investigations this will be undertaken straight away.
Our female GPs are also able to provide general health checks for ladies who may not have a specific health concern but are wanting to screen any underlying symptoms.
Our women’s health clinics can cover the following:
- Menopause and HRT (Hormone replacement therapy)
- Smear tests for cervical cancer
- Pregnancy testing
- Family planning and contraceptive choices
- Pelvic pain
- Vaginal discharge
- Period problems
- Genital itching or irritation
- Genital lumps or ulcers
- Breast lumps
- Breast pain
- Breast examination
- HPV vaccination
- Health screening
- Blood tests
- Sexual health advice and testing
Private Smear Test
The wait for NHS smear tests is now up to 12 weeks, our service provides results within 3 weeks of appointment. We are also able to provide this service for patients from the age of 18, rather than waiting until the age of 25 for an NHS appointment.
Detecting breast cancer earlier
Breast cancer can’t be prevented, however, receiving regular examinations are an important part of early detection. At your breast examination, we can check for different types of abnormalities and warning signs such as lumps and pains.
Relieve the Symptoms of Menopause
Menopause is a natural biological process. But the physical symptoms, such as hot flashes, and emotional symptoms of menopause may disrupt your sleep, lower your energy or affect emotional health. At your women’s health appointment we can discuss with you the variety of effective treatments available, from lifestyle adjustments to hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is recommended by The National Institute For Clinical Excellence (NICE). Their guidelines state that HRT is effective and should be offered to women with menopausal symptoms, after discussing the risks and benefits (Read these here).
There are two main types of HRT:
- Combined HRT (oestrogen and progestogen) – for women with menopausal symptoms who still have their womb (oestrogen taken on its own can otherwise increase your risk of womb cancer)
- Oestrogen-only HRT – for women who have had their womb removed
In the event of any health concerns being identified, Summerfield Healthcare is often able to refer you on to specialist consultants or practitioners within our team ensuring a swift and responsive service.
