About us

The Emergency Gynaecology Unit (EGU) provides a consultant led emergency service to patients with gynaelogical problems or concerns in early pregnancy (up to 16 weeks gestation).

The service is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and accepts referrals from:

  • Self-referral by telephone assessment on 0161 291 2561
  • Emergency Departments following the walk-in attendance of patients meeting the criteria.

If you are not pregnant but have abdominal pain or vaginal bleeding, you can attend this unit only if your General Practitioner (GP) has assessed you and has discussed your case with the consultant on-call.

If you have not been assessed by your GP and you feel your case is an emergency, you should attend your local Accident and Emergency Department.

Gyane Voices

There is a patient focus group called Gyane Voices hosted by the clinical team in EGU, which is held every Tuesday with the purpose of gathering feedback from patients who have received care when visiting EGU. The care you receive, your voice and how you feel when receiving care matters to us, and it is important that we get this right for every patient. We want to know the things we did well and areas we need to improve on. If you feel you would like to join our focus group please email to let us know that you would like to take part.
