Colposcopy

  • Base: Royal Surrrey County Hospital

About the service

Colposcopy is a detailed examination of the cervix (neck of the womb), rather like a cervical screening (smear) test. Patients are most often referred to us after an abnormal smear result – some ladies may need a treatment to their cervix, which is explained in full in the leaflet enclosed with your appointment. We also receive referrals from GPs who are concerned about their patient’s symptoms or the appearance of their cervix. Appointments are 20 minutes, and patients are very welcome to bring someone for support. A female chaperone is present throughout the examination, treatment or procedure and we try our best to make our patients as comfortable as possible.

For more information, you can view the Colposcopy patient information leaflet.
