We are located on the gynaecology wards and see women with pain and/or bleeding in early pregnancy.
We see women who have a positive pregnancy test and are between 5 weeks and 18 weeks pregnant. We also offer blood tests and follow up appointments for women that have suffered 3 consecutive miscarriages.
You will first see the nurse who will take a history from you and possibly a urine sample. If necessary, the nurse will refer you for an ultrasound scan is in the next room. The scan will be either abdominal or vaginal. Then you will see a doctor who will explain the results of your scan and further management.
If you experience further pain or bleeding after visiting the EPU, you can call during opening hours to speak to a nurse about your concerns. If the department is closed you can phone the gynaecology wards on 01273 523191 (Brighton) or 01444 441881 extn. 8370 (Haywards Heath).
