The Vulval Clinic

The Vulval Clinic offers a service to women with vulval conditions such as skin complaints of the vulva like lichen sclerosus and vulval pain known as vulvodynia.Your GP can refer to us and an appointment will usually be arranged which you will receive through the post. Women referred via the urgent cancer pathway are seen within two weeks.

The clinic assesses vulval conditions in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.
