Hello and welcome to our Community Gynaecology Service page.

Community Gynaecology provides specialist gynaecology services from the Ivy Centre at St Leonard's Hospital 

There is also a new community gynaecology pilot which is bringing the care into primary care, improving our learning and how we work together.

Please email Anita Coutinho, Anita.Coutinho1@nhs.net if you would like to be involved in improving training and education in Women's Health.
