We are proud to announce the launch of a new Community based Gynaecology Clinic which operates from different sites around the borough. This is great news for patients as it may avoid a trip to hospital for diagnostic and minor treatment procedures which can easily be done in a local health centre. Find out more about our Community Gynaecology Clinic in our 'services' section above. The service will be run by Dr Uma Marthi who has extensive knowledge and experience in gynaecology. Here's what Dr Marthi has to say about the service:
'I would like to thank GP Care services and their admin team for supporting my passion, I am very happy that we can offer a gynaecology service within the community again. Simple solutions and advice can make a huge difference to women and this will be very rewarding for all involved.
Together, we wanted to create an easily accessible service for women within Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale that offered a 'one-stop-shop' for assessment, treatment and aftercare for most gynaecological problems. We have all worked really hard to get the clinics up and running with the aim of helping more women get access to appropriate care. I also hope that we are able to educate the GP trainees in Primary Care gynaecology sometime in the near future.
Unfortunately, I feel there are women still suffering in silence with gynaecological issues and I hope this new service gives them the confidence to attend one of our clinics and get the treatment they need and deserve.’
