"During the current COVID-19 crisis North West Gynaecology consultants are supporting the NHS and have had to reduce their private work due to NHS commitments. We are still able to offer consultations for existing patients if required, and depending on the degree of urgency, some new consultations, although this may need to be by telephone or video.

What’s a vulva anyway……

The British Society for Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology funded an educational grant 1 year ago. The winners of this grant produced an educational resource aimed at adolescents in order to educate and inform them about the variation of the normal vulva.

This is largely in response to the worrying continuing trend of teenage girls requesting labial reduction surgery for entirely normal vulvas. It is hoped that increased education in a format and design which would appeal to this target audience will help to reverse this trend.

The resource is entitled “So what’s a vulva anyway?” and was launched at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists by the college president Professor Lesley Regan at the annual joint RCOG/BritSPAG meeting. It was very well received by the audience and was trending on the BBC website shortly after.
