Women’s Services


Here at WWL, we offer an extensive range of Women’s Healthcare Services provided by highly skilled specialists with a variety of sub-specialties.

The Women’s Healthcare Unit is now located within the Hanover Diagnostic and Treatment Centre, which has seen a £6.8 million refurbishment. We are now able to offer a comprehensive range of Gynaecology services.The Unit, based at Leigh, provides patient focussed services in a calm and relaxing setting.

Our philosophy is to offer ‘one stop’ appointments whenever possible to ensure all diagnostic tests are carried out during a single visit to outpatients. Minor surgery is carried out at Leigh Infirmary, with major surgery taking place at Royal Albert Edward Infirmary.
