Cervical smear and HPV check: £450

Cervical screening looks for certain types of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV), a common group of viruses that can cause changes to the cells of your cervix. If high-risk subtypes of HPV are found to be positive, the cells of the cervix within that sample are checked for any changes which can then be treated before they get a chance to develop into cervical cancer.

As per the NHS guidelines, smear and HPV tests are only available for women of the age of 25 and over.

Contraceptive coil insertion: from £445

Intrauterine devices also known as ‘coils’ are ideal for women who wish to use this for contraception or to help with heavy or painful periods. Coil insertions with Dr Hayes are designed with you in mind, making it as easy and stress-free as possible to have a coil fitted, removed or replaced.

Contraceptive coil removal: £350

If you’re in need of a coil removal, our service is designed with you in mind, making it as easy and stress-free as possible to have your coil removed. In circumstances where a coil removal hasn’t been possible in an outpatient consultation, we offer an outpatient hysteroscopy which is a simple procedure under local anaesthetic to remove the coil.

Early, late, painful period review: £550

Irregular and painful periods can be caused by various factors, usually involving hormonal changes, including menopause or hormonal contraception. Other aspects can include stress, weight gain, extreme exercise or underlying health conditions, such as endometriosis or fibroids. Our review is designed to help find the cause and regulate your cycles.

Fertility check: £555

Our fertility check is designed to help you understand your fertility status and ability to conceive. It can also be a first step in deciding whether to delay having a baby until the time is right or consider egg freezing for the future. Understanding your fertility health early on can bring peace of mind and more time to explore your options.

Menopause review: £400

The menopause is different for everyone. The common signs and symptoms (hot flashes, irregular periods, mood swings etc.) are usually enough to tell most women that they’ve started the transition. This can have a big impact on your life, including relationships and work. Our menopause check is designed to help you take control with expert advice and individualised treatment.

Outpatient hysterosocopy: from £1,900

Outpatient hysteroscopies are designed to investigate, diagnose and possibly treat a number of issues within the uterus. Whether you suffer from abnormal bleeding, recurrent miscarriage or simply need help with a displaced IUD coil, an outpatient hysteroscopy can investigate your concern without the need for general anaesthetic.

Ovarian cancer screen: £300

Ovarian cancer is one of the most common cancers in women. Whether you have a family history or are concerned about your symptoms, our ovarian screen is designed to detect early signs of any ovarian cancer. Early detection and diagnosis can prevent anything out of the ordinary from becoming more serious.

PCOS – Polycystic Ovary Syndrome screen: £550

PCOS is a common type of hormonal imbalance that affects ovarian function. It can cause a varied range of symptoms and go on to affect fertility and increase the risk of other health conditions. Our PCOS screen is designed to help diagnose you, relieve symptoms and minimise the impact on your everyday life.

Pre-pregnancy health check: £850

Our pre-pregnancy health check is the best way of ensuring a healthy pregnancy before you start trying to conceive. It’s designed to assess medical conditions and lifestyle factors that can affect pregnancy and help you make sure that your body is ready as you embark on this exciting journey.

Recurrent miscarriage screen: £1,350

Miscarriages can be deeply upsetting and traumatic, and sadly some women suffer multiple pregnancy losses. It’s not always clear why recurrent miscarriages occur and there can be many complex and varied causes. Our recurrent miscarriage screen is designed to give you an insight into the possible causes, offer advice to reduce the risk of miscarriage and improve the chance of a successful pregnancy. This package is designed for women who have experienced two or more miscarriages.

Recurrent thrush screen: £550

Thrush is a common yeast infection that affects most women at some point in their life. Whilst most cases can be treated quickly, recurrent thrush needs a different approach where the cause of the thrush is treated.

Sexual health check – Comprehensive: £650

Routine sexual health screening can be a positive thing to do if you’re sexually active or embarking on a new relationship. It’s a vital part of looking after yourself even if you haven’t noticed any changes, particularly as not all STIs have symptoms. It’s designed to catch and treat any infections early and for your peace of mind.

Sexual health check – Lite: £400

Routine sexual health screening can be a positive thing to do if you’re sexually active or embarking on a new relationship. It’s a vital part of looking after yourself even if you haven’t noticed any changes, particularly as not all STIs have symptoms. Our Lite check is designed to catch and treat common infections early and for your peace of mind.

Vaginal health check: £350

Vaginal health is an important part of a woman’s overall health. Most women experience some kind of genital infection or irritation at least once in their life. Ongoing vaginal health issues can affect fertility, self-confidence and also cause stress or relationship problems. Receive expert advice on the signs and symptoms of vaginal problems and what you can do to protect your vaginal health.

Well woman check: £600

It’s a comprehensive assessment of your gynaecological health, tailored to your individual needs. It’s designed to provide peace of mind by providing early detection of gynaecological conditions that may affect you even if you’re not showing any specific symptoms. Dr Hayes recommends a once-yearly well woman check.

As per the NHS guidelines, smear and HPV tests are only available for women of the age of 25 and over.
