Early pregnancy and gynaecology unit

The early pregnancy and acute gynaecology unit (EPAGU) is an emergency unit. We see people who:

  • are in the early stages of their pregnancy (up to 18 weeks)
  • have acute gynaecological problems needing urgent support

We provide:

  • same day emergency care
  • urgent planned appointments
  • support during the first 18 weeks of pregnancy
  • early scans for people who have been seen in our recurrent miscarriage clinic and /or are on treatment for previous miscarriages

We work with the gynaecology ward.

EPAGU is a specialist nurse-led unit.
