Further information for patients
Gynaecological ultrasounds - this is an
appointment system and requires a referral from your GP or
doctor. These are usually booked as a transvaginal (internal)
scan which is similar to a smear and a full bladder is not
required. If you are unable to have a vaginal scan for any reason,
please discuss this when you call to make your appointment. Scans
can still be performed during your period. Please call 0117 342
5347 calling between 9-12am and 2-5pm Monday - Friday to arrange
the appointment. The referral expires one month from date the
doctor saw you so please call promptly.

please see contact us below.
- First trimester screening scan

Your examination results
When you have an imaging test it is important that the doctor
who requested your tests acts on the results.
For gynaecological examinations reports should be with your GP
within 10 working days. If you have not been told your results by
your GP, contact the surgery and do not assume there is nothing you
need to know or 'no news' means all is well. Your examination will
be conducted by a radiographer or a radiologist and a formal report
issued to your GP or clinician by a radiologist or
radiographer. For hospital referrals the results will be ready
for your next hospital clinic visit.
For obstetric examinations the results will be
given on the same day, with a report in the notes.
