Welcome to the Gynaecology Ward

Ward 62 is a 40 bedded ward dedicated to the care of gynaecology patients.  We treat patients both from our local community and from across the region.

We care for women with a range of different conditions including:


  • Gynaecological oncology
  • Patients with early pregnancy problems (less than 20 weeks pregnant)
  • Infertility
  • General gynaecology
  • Urological gynaecology
  • General gynaecological emergencies
  • Women undergoing termination of pregnancy for social or medical reasons.

We have 32 in-patient beds and 12 day case beds.

We have an admissions lounge located on the ground floor of Saint Mary's where patients are seen prior to surgery and go directly to theatre then return to a bed on Ward 62 for their post-operative care.

Between 10.00 pm and 8.00 am (seven days a week) we also see all women with gynaecological emergencies on the ward.

We operate an enhanced recovery programme in which we encourage active recovery after major gynaecological surgery.
