A change from traditional care pathways to more cost-effective, patient-centred approaches to medical practice lies at the heart of modern health service management. A 'see and treat' management philosophy is developing, under the umbrella term of 'ambulatory gynaecology', with one-stop clinics and day surgery operations replacing traditional outpatient consultations and inpatient surgery. This book sets out how the concept of ambulatory gynaecology can be applied to the main areas of gynaecological practice. It covers analgesia and anaesthesia for outpatient gynaecology, colposcopy services, abnormal uterine bleeding, endometrial ablation, urogynaecology, infertility, early pregnancy units, emergency gynaecological services, pelvic ultrasound and interventional radiology.
