Miss Sara J. Matthews
Consultant Gynaecologist and Subspecialist in Reproductive Medicine
We provide expert personalised medical care for women with general gynaecological problems, and for those in need of contraception, gynaecological surgery, and management of menopausal issues. We specialise in fertility management, from checking a single woman's fertile potential ( and protecting that through egg freezing as appropriate), to the investigation and management of couples ( same sex and heterosexual) who wish to conceive.
Focus on: Ovarian screening
