Miss Sara J. Matthews

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

Ovarian cancer
Ovarian cancer is the 5th commonest cancer in females in the UK, with 19 women a day receiving the diagnosis. The incidence in young women has increased by 56% in the past 40 years, but luckily the 5 year survival for the disease has doubled over that time to 43%. This survival rate rises to 90% when the disease is picked up early.
We offer a routine screening service for ovarian cancer as part of our annual gynaecological check up. This comprises a scan and some blood tests for markers of the disease. BRCA testing is available for patients with a family history of breast or ovary cancer.
