About the Primary Care Gynaecology Service (PCGS)
This service has been commissioned by Coventry and Warwickshire ICB, initially for one year from September 2022, so that your patients can be seen more quickly and conveniently for routine gynaecological care.
The PGCS will provide a single point of access for routine gynaecology conditions and treatments where these cannot be met within your own practice.
The PCGS is being provided by the four GP Federations working in partnership across Coventry and Warwickshire and will focus initially on working through the existing secondary care waiting list, where some patients have been waiting as long as 18 months to be seen.
Use of the service requires a completed Data Sharing Agreement (see link below)
Please can we ask that you import the EMIS template provided (see right) to your system to use the PCGS. It is a structured template for our gynae clinicians to use during the patient consultation. It is NOT a referral template
If you require support to do this please email email@example.com
Please forward a standard referral form detailing the appropriate clinical problem (see inclusion criteria)
