The only female consultant gynaecologist who specialises in uro-gynaecology in the Bristol has joined the South West’s largest private hospital, Spire Bristol Hospital. Spire has a number of successful gynaecologists and the addition of a female consultant will further strengthen the service. Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, Elisabeth Adams, heads south following 15 years at Spire’s sister hospital in Liverpool. She will be holding regular clinics at the Redland site.
“I had a very successful private clinic up at Spire Liverpool and I now look forward to building the same reputation down here in Bristol,” said Miss Adams.
“I have heard excellent reviews of Spire Bristol Hospital and can’t wait to start seeing patients within these fantastic facilities.
“I specialise in prolapse, incontinence and genital problems in females. With more than 25 years’ experience, I want to offer the women of Bristol and the surrounding areas the help they might be searching for.”
Miss Adams, who will also be supporting the NHS at St Michael’s Hospital, Bristol, said women need not be embarrassed by their symptoms and gives assurance that help is available. She explained: “It’s important that women take their health seriously and do not ignore issues such as period pain or issues surrounding incontinence or prolapse. There are many non-surgical and surgical treatments available and women shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.”
This month, Spire Bristol Hospital is promoting the awareness of women’s health and is holding a series of free patient information evenings. Miss Adams and Spire Bristol’s specialist physiotherapist will be hosting one such evening on Wednesday, October 19.
The event will provide information and advice on women’s issues surrounding the pelvic floor, which may include incontinence, prolapse and childbirth issues, such as episiotomy breakdown.
“Every woman’s situation and medical history is different, so at our patient event we want to provide women with a safe and secure environment to ask questions,” said Miss Adams.
And Ruth Povey, Events Co-ordinator at Spire Bristol Hospital, added: “At Spire we perform a wide range of procedures, but the first step for patients is to find information, so people can make informed decisions about their health. Our event is the perfect platform for this.”
