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
- 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.

Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
