Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital maintains Endometriosis Centre of Excellence accreditation

25 March 2024

The Cambridge EndoCare Centre at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital has been accredited, for the 4th consecutive year, by the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE) for 2024.

Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital and the Cambridge EndoCare Centre team are celebrating after recently being re-accredited by the BSGE (British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy) having successfully met all the required criteria, targets and outcomes for work during 2023. Led by the centre’s Director Professor Mohamed Mabrouk, Consultant Gynaecologist and Endometriosis Surgeon, the hospital’s multidisciplinary team have achieved this high-status accreditation for the fourth year running after becoming the first private endometriosis centre in East Anglia to be accredited by the BSGE in 2020.

This latest accreditation has been particularly timely as we mark Endometriosis Awareness Month, during which healthcare professionals, charities, support groups and endometriosis patients strive to raise awareness globally to increase knowledge about the symptoms and challenges faced by those affected by this chronic, long-term condition.

Around 1 in 10 women and those assigned female at birth in the UK, aged between 16 and 50, have endometriosis. It occurs when the tissue that lines your womb (endometrial tissue) grows outside your womb, usually around your ovaries, fallopian tubes and pelvic area, although it can spread further to your bowel. With endometriosis also being the second most common gynaecological condition in the UK there is clearly a need to educate and share information to help those affected. 

Professor Mabrouk said:

“As we celebrate this remarkable achievement and significant milestone in our journey at the EndoCare Endometriosis Centre, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to the entire team. From our skilled doctors and dedicated nurses to all our support personnel. Each role within our centre contributes to the seamless operation and the outstanding patient care that we are known for. All the teams’ efforts have ensured that we continue to offer a sanctuary of hope and healing for those women affected by endometriosis. We now look forward to the year ahead with commitment to advancing the care and treatment of this debilitating condition.”

Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital hosted a free patient information event, “Endo Empower”: Managing Endometriosis Together, on 16 March to give people the opportunity to meet and hear from Professor Mabrouk and the hospital’s multi-disciplinary specialist team. Patients also shared their own experiences of having the condition, an insight into the treatment that they have had and their successful outcomes with 120 people who attended from the local area and beyond. This coming together of people who suffer with endometriosis, their partners and family members can only help with understanding the condition more and support those who are trying to manage the challenges that they face every day.
