Gynaecology

The demand for NHS women’s services is increasing right across the UK.Cases of cervical cancer are on the rise, mainly due to younger women and some women from ethnic minorities, being reluctant to participate in national screening programmes. Secondly, an ageing population has seen an increase in other cancers like ovarian, vulval and vaginal cancers. While the incidence of endometrial cancer is increasing as a result of an aging population, a decrease in hysterectomy rates and an increase in obesity.

This all puts extra pressure on gynaecology departments.

How insourcing can support your gynaecology department

By contracting 18 Week Support to work within your NHS Trust over the weekend, our gynaecology team is able to make full use of your resources, including specialist equipment and theatres, which otherwise wouldn’t be used. It means we’re able to treat women for a range of gynaecological conditions including heavy and irregular menstrual bleeding, painful periods, pelvic pain, menopausal problems, fibroids, endometriosis, uterovaginal prolapse, recurrent miscarriage and vulval problems.

It means we can help you meet the rising demand for gynaecology services, help you reduce RTT waiting times and ensure your waiting list backlog is cleared.
