Our Services A - Z - Gynaecological Cancers
About the service
Our aim is to provide a high quality service to all of our patients. We strive to meet the best standards for professional care whilst being sensitive and responsive to the needs of individual patients.
We aim to support all of our patients throughout their journey and ensure a co-ordinated approach to diagnosis, treatment and care services for patients diagnosed with Gynaecological cancers; this can include cancer of the Vulva, Endometrium (Womb), Cervix and Ovary affecting women across all ages.
We are able to offer a comprehensive range of surgical treatments to help diagnose or treat cancer within our Gynae-Oncology Consultant team; these can be laparoscopic or open procedures and will be discussed with you at length.
Chemotherapy can be provided at the Lilac Centre at St Helens and Radiotherapy is delivered at Clatterbridge Centre. We work closely with the medical and clinical Oncology teams at Clatterbridge to provide an all-round holistic approach to your care.
