Women referred by their GP with suspected gynaecological cancers will be cared for by a team of specialist doctors (Gynaecology Oncologists).
We provide a service for gynaecological cancers including vulval and vaginal cancers and vulval and vaginal pre-cancers. In addition, other rare tumours are managed including germ cells tumours and cervical, endometrial and ovarian cancers.
The purpose of the service is to treat specialised cancers and pre-cancers in a multidisciplinary team, with the involvement of gynaecologists, dermatologists, oncologists and specialist radiologists and pathologists.
Staffing of the cancer centre includes gynae oncology consultants, a clinical oncologist, a clinical nurse specialist, an oncology sister, radiologists and pathologists.
Primary treatments may involve surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy or a combination of these. In addition, support services such as pathology and palliative care are also well established.
