GP Education: Gynaecology

16th May 2018

On Wednesday 16th May Medvivo hosted its third education event entitled ‘Management of Urgent Gynaecology Problems in Primary Care’.

This is a series of events which are co-hosted by Medvivo and BMI Healthcare. They are designed specifically for GPs, Nurse Practitioners and Prescribing Pharmacists who work in Urgent Care.

Dr Jamie Brosch, Medvivo’s Medical Director, welcomed 18 GPs and NPs to Fox Talbot House for the latest event in this series. Everyone enjoyed a light supper while Dr Brosch gave a brief update on the progress of Medvivo's Integrated Urgent Care service.

We were very pleased to then welcome Mr David Griffiths, Consultant Gynaecologist. Mr Griffiths is currently practicing at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon and the BMI Ridgeway Hospital, Wroughton. His special interests are minimal access surgery, endometriosis, pelvic floor disorders and other women's health problems.

In his very interesting talk he focused predominantly on pelvic pain but also covered the following conditions: 

  • Interstitial Cystitis
  • Endometriosis
  • Adhesions
  • Ectopic pregnancy

Mr Griffiths has kindly shared the presentation slides from his talk.

The remainder of the evening was then open to a question and answer session which everyone found useful and beneficial and Mr Griffiths was very obliging in his responses. Our thanks to Mr Griffiths for joining us at this informative event, and to everyone who attended.

Forthcoming events:

  • 13th September: General Surgery by Mr Chris Thorn from BMI Healthcare (specific subject to be confirmed)
  • 6th December: Geriatric Medicine by Colin Frackrell from BMI Healthcare

Both events will take place at Fox Talbot House, Chippenham, 18:45pm - 21:00 and will include a light supper.
