Early Pregnancy

Our Early Pregnancy Clinic (EPC) provides a streamlined nurse led service always supported by junior doctors and Consultants as and when necessary for pregnant women with pain and bleeding in early pregnancy.

Who do we see?

  • Pregnant women with pain or/and bleeding in early pregnancy up to 20 weeks
  • Pregnant women with high risk of an ectopic pregnancy

What should you expect at your visit?
You will see a Nurse Specialist who will ask you for details of your symptoms and arrange for a scan where appropriate. You will be asked to provide a urine sample and you may be required to have some blood tests. The nurse will see you again after your scan and plan a treatment for you. You may have to return for blood tests or scans and will be advised. We endeavour to give you appointments that suit you but this may not always be possible.

You will be required to have an appointment to attend the clinic – 01582 718179.
