The colposcopy service is part of gynaecology services and works with the cytology and histopathology departments in the management of disease of the cervix.
We provide diagnostic facilities and treatment for pre-invasive disease of the cervix using LLETZ and cervical cautery.
Patients with suspected cervical cancer should be referred via the rapid access pathway and will be seen within two weeks.
Patients with abnormal cytology (cervical smears) are referred directly through the cytology service.
Patients with suspected infection should be referred to genito urinary medicine via Suffolk 's Integrated Contraception and Sexual Health service.
Patients with menstrual disorders should be referred to general gynaecology or the menstrual disorders clinic.
We also see patients with symptoms suspicious of cervical disease, such as post-coital bleeding.
