Greenwich Community Gynaecology Services Greenwich

Community gynaecology services are provided by GSH Central (Greenwich Contraception and Sexual Health).

  • Irregular or abnormal bleeding (unless your GP suspects something serious)
  • Assessment of fertility (difficulty becoming pregnant)
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Pain in the abdomen or pain or difficulty having sex
  • Pain or itching in the vagina or vulva (skin outside the vagina)
  • ‘Lost’ IUD (coil)
  • Help with prolapse (lump in the vagina).

How to access the service

Your GP will need to refer you to the service. They will do this through the Greenwich Referral Management Service, a specialist team who manage referrals to other health services. You will be contacted by the Greenwich Referral Management Service who will give you a choice of available appointment times and dates.

The CASH team offers community gynaecology services from Tuesday to Friday, during the day and in the evening. Appointments are currently available at Market Street Health Centre.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.

Hi there,

I recently used an online Livi GP service to get an appointment about my Amenorrhoea and have given me a private referral letter (a copy of which I can provide). Please advise whether you are able to help me with this. They have requested and assessment and management along with blood tests (mentioned prolactin levels).

I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks

Hi Tara

Thanks for your enquiry. Currently Oxleas community gynaecology service is an NHS provider and is unable to offer private appointments.

However, if you are a UK resident living in either the Borough of Greenwich or Bexley, we would be able to accept your Livi GP referral and add you to the waiting list to see one of our Dr's.

There is a currently approximately a 6-week waiting list to be seen. If you have any queries or concerns, please contact the service at our Market Street site on 020 8301 8920 and ask to speak with a Lead Nurse or our Operations Manager.

Kind regards
