About our colposcopy sevice

An invite for colposcopy follows the result of your cervical screening test at your GP surgery or if you have symptoms and your GP feels that an examination of your cervix would be helpful for a diagnosis.

Conditions we treat:

  • Abnormal smear results
  • Post-coital bleeding – bleeding following sexual intercourse
  • An abnormal-looking cervix when having your smear taken

How to prepare for your visit

If a female nurse or doctor is required, please request this before the date of your appointment.

If you think you may have your period on the day of the appointment, please reschedule your appointment.

Please try to abstain from sexual intercourse or applying lubricants for at least 24 hours before your appointment.

You can eat & drink normally as you do  not need to fast for this appointment.

Where to find us

We are situated on level -1 in the Maternity Building, inside Womens Outpatients.
