Women's Health Unit

The Women's Health Unit (WHU) is an outpatient unit dealing with the health needs of women.

Our main aim is to provide the most up-to-date care for a range of gynaecological problems, and to deliver a high quality service and individual care to women.

We provide excellent clinical services in a modern purpose-built environment. We have disabled access and toilet facilities, and a parent and child room is nearby to the unit.
