On referral we will contact the patient to offer an appointment at the earliest possible opportunity. We aim to see all women with suspected complications (pain or bleeding in early pregnancy) within 24 hours. If you are concerned that the patient may have an ectopic pregnancy and we cannot offer an appointment within 24 hours we advise that the patient is seen in the emergency department by our on call doctors.

Please note that the service does not accept walk-in patients.
