The department includes 30 Gynaecological beds, an Antenatal Clinic, a Delivery Ward with integral operating theatre, and two Obstetric wards with beds that are used flexibly.
The team consists of 8 STrs, 3 part-time joint Women’s Health post, 7 SpRs and one Staff Grade Doctor. There are also two Associate Specialists, who have main commitments with the Family Planning Clinic, and both run different specialist sessions in the Gynaecology department. There are 9 Consultants. There is a partial shift system in operation which rotates through an 8 week cycle, which includes fixed holidays.
The SHO gains experience in all aspects of care of mothers with normal and abnormal pregnancies, and in all aspects of Gynaecology. There are specialist clinics in the following:
- Colposcopy Clinic
- Postmenopausal Bleeding Clinic
- Early Pregnancy Clinic
- Vulva Clinic
- Urogynaecology Clinic
- Gynae-endocrine Clinic
- Diabetic antenatal clinic
The STrs are taught and will be expected to undertake minor practical procedures in both disciplines. The department receives excellent support from the Paediatric, Anaesthetic and Pathology Units and works very closely with the Midwifery Department.
Regular, formal and informal teaching are given a high priority by all the Consultants. The posts are recognised for the DRCOG examination. Medical students are regularly attached to the department. There is active clinical governance, active audit involvement and each SHO is expected to perform an audit project. Some of these result in publications at a later date.
Nicola Dean is the RCOG district tutor.
