What we do

Women attending the Gynaecological Cancer Clinic may have a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of a gynaecological cancer. At this clinic we will ask you a number of questions about your symptoms and any issues affecting your health. We will conduct a physical examination to work out if you need to have further tests.  We will then discuss with you your treatment options and assist you to make decisions about your care.

Information for patients

Your first appointment

After you have been referred to the Gynaecological Cancer Clinic by a doctor, you will receive a letter from the Women’s with an appointment time.

If a MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan has been arranged for you it is important to fast for 4 hours prior to the appointment and driving following the scan is discouraged.

If you are unable to attend your appointment, or need to change the time, please contact the clinic as soon as possible so that we can make another appointment for you.
