Published: 15/06/2009

This is the first edition of this guidance.

Gynaecology is a major surgical specialty and it therefore follows that gynaecological emergencies are one of the most common indications for surgery. This document lays down the principles for service organisation and delivery of emergency gynaecology. These principles apply to units where patients with emergency gynaecological conditions are clinically assessed, investigated and treated.
