Each patient is unique, and we tailor treatments specific to your needs.
Our ethos takes a holistic approach, encompassing all aspects of women’s healthcare including dietary and lifestyle advice, non-hormonal medicines, Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), and contraception. All our advice and treatments are in keeping with the latest evidence-based research, in accordance with National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE), British Menopause Society (BMS), and Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists. We only prescribe medications regulated and governed by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
Our vision is to provide a ‘one-stop clinic’ where all your needs can be met in one place. We provide detailed initial and ongoing assessments, gynaecology and breast examinations, prescriptions, blood tests, and a full range of contraceptive services including coil and implant fittings. We can also direct our patients to private imaging services should this be required.
We see the clinic as an opportunity to provide long term health benefits for our patients. Whether you choose to have just the one consultation or have an ongoing long term professional relationship, we want to provide you the tools and support for longevity.
