Gynaecological cancer

We provide treatment and care if you have a gynaecological cancer. This includes:

Our team of experts offer assessment and diagnosis at our rapid access clinic. This is a one-stop clinic where you can have all your tests and assessments done on the same day.

We also have a team of cancer surgeons providing:

  • complex radical surgery, this is where your tumour and any tissue it has spread to are removed at the same time
  • fertility preserving surgery for early cervical and ovarian cancers
  • keyhole and robotic surgery

We work closely with our assisted conception unit (ACU) for fertility preservation options.
