Gynae referral

I went to the gp had a cervical examination she said the cervix looked inflamed and a possible ulcer on one side she referred me to the 2 week referral route since then I have recieved a letter saying curable cervix and I’m unaware of what that means ? I haven’t yet gone to my appointment 

  • Hello Shannnnnn, 

    Hopefully you will have your appointment in the next few days and they will be able to look at your cervix and carry out investigations if needed. It's good that your GP is being thorough and that they have referred you to be seen by a specialist. I am not sure myself what this 'curable cervix' mention in the letter means but perhaps this is something you could ask them when you go to your appointment. I am sure the specialist will be able to explain to you what this means.

    If you would also like to talk things through with one of our nurses, you are welcome to give them a call on this free number 0808 800 4040 - their line is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. 

    Best of luck for your appointment and I hope that they will be able to clarify things for you. 

    Best wishes,
