I run an out-patient hysteroscopy clinic as part of these services every week. I also run a weekly gynaecology & colposcopy Multi-Disciplinary Meeting with pathology/cytology/radiology) which other specialties frequently refer to for advice.

Once per month I have a vulval disease clinic with referrals from GP's dermatology & GUM.

'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
