Emergency Gynae Assessment Unit

Our Emergency Gynaecology assessment unit is an area specialising in any gynaecology emergencies we see gynaecological patients that are admitted via Accident and Emergency, their GP or via patient access services. The unit is run by a group of specially trained Clinical Nurse specialists with the support of health care assistants. If you are referred to the unit when you first arrive you will be seen by a nurse who will confirm your name, address, date of birth. They will then take a baseline set of observations to include temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and height and weight measurements. The nurses will take an initial history of your presenting complaints and undertake any required examinations, following this you will be seen by a Doctor who will plan your care accordingly; this could include anything from initial treatment, blood tests an Ultra Sound Scan or Emergency Surgery if required. We also initiate and provide a fast hydration service for any patient experiencing Hyperemesis Gravidarum (a type of severe morning sickness).
