We have just had news that funding for providing vaginal pessaries in our Women's Health Clinic changes has been approved.
This means that we will now be able to insert / remove / change vaginal pessaries for patients.
Our Women’s Health Clinic is open to all women living in Argyll and Bute- you don't need to be a patient at the practice. It runs around once a month - call the practice on 01369 860 224 for the times of our next clinics and to book an appointment.
We provide contraceptive implants, coils, and pessaries for any patient in Argyll and Bute, as well as menopause advice for patients registered at the practice..
Pessaries are used to treat conditions such as prolapse and urinary incontinence which can cause a huge amount of hidden suffering for women. Women with pessaries need them checked or changed regularly. Since the covid19 crisis there have been very long waiting times for pessary changes in hospital clinics, which has caused a lot of issues for patients.
