Getting an appointment

To get an appointment with our specialist services and clinics, you will need a referral from your doctor/GP or nearest Family Planning Clinic. Your family doctor plays an important part in your health care and can work out when a referral needs to be made to look more into your condition, or if the signs and symptoms can be easily managed at home. 

Once a referral is made, it is reviewed by one of our Senior Medical Officers specialising in gynaecology. Most referrals are triaged within a week. 

Your referral may be declined - your GP will talk about this with you if that happens.

If the referral is accepted, you will be put on the waiting list and you will be given your appointment based on how quickly you need to be seen. We will let you know that you have been waitlisted. We will get in touch with your GP if we need more information or tests.

We aim to send you an appointment within four months. If you have not had an appointment within six months, please see your GP again for assessment until the appointment is sent to you.

Cancelling/rescheduling an appointment

If you have been sent an appointment and are unable to attend, please call the number listed on your letter to have your appointment rescheduled.

If you no longer require an appointment, or you are getting a private appointment, please contact us so you can be taken off the clinic waiting list and another woman can have the appointment.
