This information provides guidance on the management of gynaecology patients across Western Devon during the COVID-19 pandemic. The information is based on national guidance from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
We are continuing to book all urgent referrals during the COVID-19 pandemic including 2WW referrals, Early Pregnancy Unit (EPU), Emergency Gynaecology Unit (EGU), Hysteroscopy, Colposcopy and postmenopausal bleeding (PMB).
All routine referrals have been changed to telephone consultation where possible and if required can attend the department for examination and further investigation.
Prior to making a routine referral, please ensure that the appropriate CRG has been reviewed and all suggested management options have been considered.
All referrals will be clinically triaged prior to the allocation of appointment and these will be prioritised on a case by case basis.
Please ensure that a practice-based system is in place to check daily for returning referrals with A&G.
Please contact switchboard telephone: 01752 202082 to speak to the on-call gynae consultant, reg or SHO as required.
Advice & Guidance services remain at normal function.
