What to wear/bring to your appointment

Please do not worry about how to dress for your appointment. Obstetric examinations are almost always abdominal, as are ultrasounds, and privacy sheets are always used for your modesty and privacy.

For gynaecology appointments, there may be a requirement for an internal examination, in which case a chaperone will be offered to you, and private changing arrangements are available. Again privacy sheets are always used for your modesty and privacy. Sanitary products are available to you should they be required. Alternatively you are welcome to bring your preferred type.

Colposcopy and IUCD changes
It is common to notice some spotting and cramping after a colposcopy (where we look at your cervix under a microscope) or mirena/IUCD insertion. There are sanitary products available for you to use afterward, or you may prefer to bring your own type. The doctor may recommend some medication to help with the cramping sensation after your procedure.

What if I am on my period?
Except for colposcopies, your period should not interfere with any examination that may be required. Please do not feel uncomfortable in this situation as it is a normal part of your reproductive cycle. However, should you feel the need to change your appointment you are free to do so. If you are due to have a colposcopy and proceed to have your period, please feel at ease to call our reception and re-schedule your appointment.


Appointments

Patients can expect the doctors to do their very best to run on schedule. As obstetricians can often be called to attend births and medical emergencies at any time, it is not uncommon that clinic appointments may be running behind schedule. We appreciate that you may not always be able to wait for the doctor, in which case we are happy to try and arrange a convenient time for you to re-schedule. Please speak to our reception staff to help you with these arrangements.

Emergency appointments are available, and can be attended to promptly with two doctors available for urgent consultation. Furthermore, should you require your appointment to be brought forward, please contact our reception staff or the doctor to make such arrangements.

Privacy and Confidentiality

Any information and conversations that are had between patients and our doctors are considered to be confidential and kept strictly private. Please see our Privacy and Disclosure Policy for more information.
