Welcome to the North Bristol NHS Trust Endometriosis Centre.

Based at Southmead Hospital we are one of only 62 endometriosis centres in the UK that have been accredited by the British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE).

We have a dynamic multidisciplinary team that have the experience and knowledge to provide high quality, evidence based, patient-centred care in a supportive environment.

Meet the team

The team consists of two Gynaecology consultants who have experience and expertise in endometriosis treatment, supported by our Endometriosis Nurse Specialist. When endometriosis is affecting the bowel or bladder, our colleagues in Colorectal Surgery and Urology provide us with support. For women with thoracic endometriosis, we work closely with colleagues in Upper Gastrointestinal and Thoracic Surgery. We also have close links with a pain specialist and pelvic health physiotherapist.
