This is the time in a women’s life when the periods become less regular and eventually stop.  Physical and emotional changes can be associated with the change in periods.  These symptoms can be disruptive to daily activities and a gynaecological appointment allows you the chance to discuss your symptoms and can be very reassuring.  There are various ways to help manage all of the symptoms and during a consultation it is possible to explore your symptoms and wishes. 

Melanie can plan a treatment pathway to meet your wishes. Written information is available to support your consultation.  Melanie can direct you to allied health care professionals who can help manage your symptoms as well discuss and prescribe Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) as you wish.

Why go private?

This is a very personal choice. I believe it allows you to be seen by the Consultant of your choice at a time of your choosing in a dedicated gynaecology suite supported by specialist nurses. The appointment times are generous allowing you time to discuss your problem. It is always possible to see you quicker than in the NHS.

If you require surgery you will receive consultant delivered care at all times and have the opportunity to recover in a private room. We are happy to put together package prices for self funding procedures.


Appointments are available in our weekly outpatient clinics which run on Wednesdays and Thursdays at Chichester Nuffield.

Emergency appointments are available by arrangement with Shelley Whitbourn on 01243 753023.

Where possible we try to be flexible to accommodate your wishes and ensure you have easy access to excellent care with minimal disruption to your life.
