Gynaecology & Women’s Health Services
We are delighted to introduce our large team of expert Consultant Gynaecologists. Between them, they cover every area of Gynaecology and run some very innovative services, as well as their routine clinics.
Gynaecology is the study of the female reproductive system, its functions, disorders and diseases. It is very common for ladies to experience some kind of gynaecological problem in their lifetime and our experts see lots of patients on a daily basis.
This can include complaints such as menstrual problems, fibroids, problems getting pregnant, ovarian cysts, Endometriosis, menopause treatment and cervical polyps. Consultant Gynaecologists can also provide advice on contraception and pregnancy. Common gynaecological operations include hysterectomy, laparoscopy and colposcopy.
It might be that you already know what the problem is and just want to access private treatment to sort it out, but more and more ladies nowadays experience symptoms that remain undiagnosed and just want a little investigation to put their mind at rest or simply get some answers.
Privately insured or self-funding patients can access any one of our Consultant Gynaecologists (with a GP referral letter).

It's easy to access our Private Gynaecology Services
It is a very common misconception that private healthcare automatically means ‘expensive’. If you have private health insurance, it will only cost you your normal policy excess to access our services and if you don’t have health insurance, an initial consultation will cost between £150 and £250. The cost of the consultation does not reflect expertise as all our Consultant Specialists hold NHS Consultant posts, assuring you of the best possible standards of care and knowledge.
If you are funding your own treatment, any outpatient procedures, scans, blood tests or surgical procedures will carry an additional cost which you will be kept fully informed of throughout your journey with us. We have recently reviewed all our prices to ensure we remain competitive and in line with other private healthcare providers.
All you need is a referral letter from your GP. It is normal practice nowadays for GPs to issue private referral letters and normally there is no charge for this. Your GP will of course be kept informed of any consultations, scans, tests or surgical procedures carried out at Claremont.
