A Solihull clinic specialising in endometriosis has just received the UK’s highest quality mark from the British Society for Gynaelogical Endoscopy (BSGE).
Endometriosis, which mainly affects women of childbearing age, is a common condition where tissue that behaves like the lining of the womb is found in other parts of the body including the ovaries, fallopian tubes, inside the tummy, and in or around the bladder or bowel.
The Midlands Endometriosis Clinic (MEC), which operates at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull, has been awarded the BSGE Accreditation for Management of Advanced Endometriosis.
Clinic members include Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist and Laparoscopic Surgeon Mr Chris Mann, Consultant Gynaecologist and Gynae-oncologist Miss Kavita Singh and Consultant Gynaecologist and Gynae-oncologist Mr Janos Balega.
Formed in 2015 the MEC had to meet nationally-approved standards in order to gain the accreditation - including having dealt with a certain number of advanced cases each year. As part of a continued assessment the clinic will also have to submit all future cases to a national database.
Mr Chris Mann said: “Gaining accreditation was very important to us as a clinic. It is a nationally-recognised symbol that we are providing the best treatment and care available and we are proud to have that fact recognised.”
