Sexual health for women
The London General Practice offers a wide range of screening tests, some of which are not routinely available or easy to access on the NHS, including screening for ovarian cancer (CA125) and BRCA 1/2 genetic screening. We can also provide mammogram examinations within our own suite of treatment rooms, with the option of thermal breast imaging for younger women.
Our women’s health programme includes bone density examinations within dedicated osteoporosis clinics. Bone quality does decline after the menopause but lifestyle changes can help to prevent bone loss and if treatment becomes necessary, it can be used to slow any further degeneration.
