Gynaecology Services

Our Gynaecology team at King’s College Hospital, offers women a comprehensive range of services for all gynaecology conditions, as well as women’s health screening services. As part of King’s College Hospital in London, our gynaecologists have a wide range of experience in diagnosing and treating women with many different conditions.

We offer:

Cervical screening: we use a procedure called colposcopy to look at the cervix to check for abnormal cells that may develop into cervical cancer. The colposcopy is carried out in the clinic and normally takes around 15-20 minutes. You’ll be asked to undress from the waist down and a speculum is inserted into the vagina, where it is gently opened so that the doctor can examine the cervix. A tiny sample of cells (biopsy) is taken for examination in a laboratory and you will receive your results a few weeks later.
Contraceptive services: these can be accessed by men and women. You will be able to have confidential advice about contraception including:

  • The combined oral contraceptive pill
  • The progestogen-only pill
  • Progestogen contraceptive injections
  • Contraceptive implants
  • Condoms
  • Emergency contraception
  • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Breast checks
