Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology

This service is specifically designed to focus on caring for children and adolescents with gynaecological problems of all types.  The service offers age appropriate care to children and teenagers in a non-threatening environment and provides support for children in the transition to adult care in a supportive and familiar environment.

We see children/young people with gynaecological conditions* including:

  • Menstrual disorders
  • Vaginal Discharge
  • Pre-pubertal bleeding
  • Vulval disorders
  • Pelvic pain
  • Ovarian disorders
  • Sexual development disorders. (These are seen within a multi-disciplinary setting which also involves an advanced nurse specialist and clinical psychologist.)

*Please note: termination of pregnancy and contraceptive advice is not covered in this service.  Young patients requiring these services should contact the Whitworth Clinic, which is a specialised service and it not age dependant.

The Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology Service offers new referral appointments, follow up care and surgery when required.  The service is also part of the multi-disciplinary team for bladder extrophy in the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital.


Key staff:

  1. Dr Gail Busby, Consultant Gynaecologist
  2. Karen Donnelly, Advanced Nurse Practitioner and sexual health specialist
  3. Debra Anderson, Clinical Psychologist
