Women's Health Services The Priory Hospital
Throughout their life women can suffer from a multitude of specific health problems which require specialised care and attention.
At The Priory Hospital, we offer a range of women’s health services and consultants who operate across a variety of different subspecialties who can tailor treatment plans unique to our female patients’ needs.
It is essential that women check their bodies and go for regular gynaecological and breast screening, either within the NHS or privately. Whatever health problem they have, female patients can feel rest assured they will be treated with the respect, dignity and empathy they deserve.
Nearly every woman will suffer from a gynaecological problem at some time in her life. It may not be life threatening, and may only affect them at certain times of the month, but it can still have an impact on their quality of life and ability to do everyday things.
With many of the region’s leading Gynaecologists choosing to work at our hospitals together with Gynae-oncologists we are able to treat the broadest range of patients and treat all major conditions related to gynaecology as well as treat women of all ages.
The type of treatment you will receive will depend on your symptoms, your age and whether you wish to have children. Your consultant will assess your condition and give you an expert opinion. If further diagnostic tests or treatment are required, these will be explained fully during your consultation.

Changes in the breast are absolutely normal and are often associated with either development or ageing. However, if you are worried about any changes that you don’t consider normal, or you are experiencing discomfort in your breast or have breast pain, you should report them to a healthcare professional.
We recommend that you check your breasts a few days after your period – as lumps can occur in your breasts during your monthly menstrual cycle and this is usually completely normal. Essentially, what you’re looking for are any lumps or swellings, particularly if one breast feels different to the other. Remember, it’s always important to speak to your GP if you notice a change.
The Rapid Breast Clinic at The Priory Hospital provides high quality breast care services and is staffed by experienced consultants and a dedicated breast care nurse specialist.
Many people have no idea that they have fertility issues until they start trying for a baby, and the causes of infertility can sometimes be hard to establish.

Varicose veins can affect daily life in many ways. They may be completely symptom free, but still stop you from feeling comfortable when wearing shorts or skirts.
They may be itchy or painful, especially at the end of the day. They can even lead to more serious conditions such as ulceration of the leg. Whether you have been suffering with varicose veins for years, or have just noticed their appearance, you can make the decision to have them treated now.
You will be assessed during your first consultation and introduced to the range of treatments available to you. This includes laser treatment, VNUS closure or traditional surgery. Treatment can take place as either an in-patient or day-case, so you could go home the same day and be back to your normal activities within a couple of days.
