Gynaecological oncology 

The team of experts here at UCLH provide specialist care for women suffering from gynaecological cancer within the north-central London and West Essex sector of the London Cancer ICS (integrated cancer system). The team is made up of gynaecological cancer surgeons, oncologists (specialists in radiotherapy and chemotherapy), psychologists, clinical nurse specialists, physiotherapists and administrators amongst others.

The following hospitals make up the North London Gynaecological Cancer Network:

Women are cared for by a multidisciplinary team of experts including oncological surgeons, clinical and medical oncologists, expert radiologists and pathologists, clinical nurse specialists, psychologists, dieticians, physiotherapists and research nurses.

The Gynaecological Cancer Centre participates in national and international clinical trials and has its own portfolio of translational research We offer specialist treatment for all types of gynaecological (genital tract) cancers including surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. 648 women were seen by the team in 2014/15, of whom 499 had a diagnosis of cancer. The gynaecological cancer surgeons offer expert surgery including the minimally invasive approach where appropriate. Over 70% of operations for endometrial cancer are performed laparoscopically (keyhole surgery) and over 90% of cervical cancer operations are performed via a minimal access route. In 2015 a new gynaecology ward was opened in the main UCLH building.

We place great importance on quality of life after treatment for cancer and offer a variety of support services to achieve this. Our team includes three experienced clinical nurse specialists and two psychologists.  Post-treatment clinics are available to direct women to other appropriate services following their gynaecological cancer treatment such as dietetics, physiotherapy, lymphoedema services, urologists and gastroenterologists.
