Frequency

The women will attend an annual follow up unless an abnormality is found on a cervical smear and then followed up more frequently.

Triage

Triage staff may assign your referral to a clinic with a shorter waiting time and most appropriate speciality focus. More comprehensive referrals are usually seen more quickly.

Please include "History of DES exposure in utero" in your referral*

* often history is uncertain and patients want clarification as to whether they are likely to be exposed or not.
