Wellwoman Screening

The emphasis in healthcare has moved focus to prevention and wellbeing.

Our screening options provide a comprehensive assessment for all forms of gynecological conditions. We offer a variety of screening packages using advanced techniques and technology for accurate and rapid results.

A selection of our Wellwoman screening options is listed below.

Adolescence

Human Pailloma Virus (HPV) vaccination provides protection against cervical cancer and genital warts. Ideally, this is given prior to being sexually active to girls aged 12-13, but can be given later provided there is cervical screening first to ensure HPV is not already present.

Twenty-thirty something

Sexual health screening tests are recommended if sexually active. A different combination of tests can be undertaken here -vaginal or cervical swabs, blood tests, checking for chlamydia (dubbed the silent disease), checking for BV (bacterial vaginosis, associated with a mildly offensive vaginal discharge or simple thrush). Herpes or HIV screening can be piggy-backed onto these tests if required. Early diagnosis of infections will help avoid longer term problems.

Preconception

If about to start a family, it is worth having screening tests to ensure all is well and good to go. Rubella and Toxoplasma combined with infection screen, and hormonal tests or scan if required. Fertility tests for ovarian ageing, including anti-mullerian hormone (AMH).

Cervical screening (for all ages)

This is the most important screening test now to prevent cervical cancer. A smear test combined with HPV testing for improved accuracy should be undertaken regularly in all women from 18 onwards (or earlier if sexually active).

Forty-something and over

Ovarian screening should be considered especially with a family history of ovarian cancer. This includes a blood test CA 125 and scan.

Make an enquiry

If you have any questions relating to treatment options or pricing information, get in touch with us by filling out one of our contact boxes or giving us a call on 020 7806 4098.

Our Appointments Team have a dedicated and caring approach to finding you the earliest appointment possible with the best specialist.

If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP for a consultation. You can simply refer yourself* and book an appointment.

If you have health insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa Health, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation before any treatment, and in most cases you will also require a referral letter from your GP.

If you are not registered with a GP, we have an in-house private GP practice you can use. Alternatively, we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstances.

*Please note – for investigations such as X-rays and MRIs, a referral will be required. However, we may be able to arrange this for you through our on-site private GP.
