Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust is registered and accredited with the British Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (BSGE).
Strict criteria are set by the BSGE and it allows us to provide expertise and care for patients with some of the most complex deep infiltrating endometriosis cases.
All our cases of severe endometriosis are entered into the national database (anonymously) which allows us to keep up to date with national and world standards. The aim of the BSGE is to improve treatment for all patients with endometriosis and we are extremely proud to have accreditation.
We are a multidisciplinary team working closely with colorectal, urology, pain management, radiology and physiotherapy. Providing high-quality, patient-centred care delivered with compassion and understanding allowing us to put the patient at the centre of care.

We will schedule your appointment as normal and write to you to confirm the details of the date and time. But instead of traveling to your appointment, you will get a link to an online clinic.
Five minutes before your appointment time, go to the general waiting room that has been given to you in your confirmation letter. Having entered the waiting room, you will be taken through a series of steps to ensure that your equipment is set up correctly. Once the steps have been completed, you will be prompted to enter your name and telephone number and accept the terms and conditions. This information is not stored beyond the length of the video call.
Once these steps have been followed, click on the 'Start Call' button and you will enter the waiting room. You will see yourself on the video and hear music. The waiting room is private and you will not see other patients.
In the waiting room area, you will be met by a Receptionist who will confirm your details and transfer you to see a Clinician. Your clinician will be notified when you arrive, and they will join you as soon as they are ready
When the appointment is ready to begin, your image will shrink and move to the corner of the screen and you will see your clinician. The video call is free (except your internet usage charge) and data is not used whilst you are in the waiting room.
Please only access the waiting room that you have been told to enter on your confirmation letter.
Please click the waiting room you are attending from the list below:

The Laughing Game
If you are need of a little cheering up, how about this little game to play with the kids...or even a party game for adults!!
How To Play The Laughing Game The objective of this game is to get everyone to laugh while you can not laugh yourself. Have everyone sit in a circle facing each other. When it is someones turn, they have to say or act something out to get everyone else to laugh. If you laugh then you are out until the next round. Last person to not laugh wins the game. This game is as fun as you make it!
How about starting a 30 days song challenge in your team? This can be particularly helpful if teams are not currently working together. Collate the songs on a streaming service, such as Spotify, where you can share the link. This can be a good conversation starter, can provide the opportunity to check in with staff on a more informal basis and...it's fun!
Pictionary With Zoom's Whiteboard Feature
Zoom has a whiteboard sharing feature that is just perfect for playing Pictionary with your friends. You can play with the actual game or make up your own prompts. To use it, you'll need to make sure you have at least a 3.5.1 or higher of the Zoom desktop client for PC or 3.5.2 for Mac. If you are using your iPad, you'll need a 2.5.3 or higher.
To use Zoom's whiteboard, you'll want to click the share screen button located in your meeting toolbar, select the whiteboard, and click share. You should then see annotation tools that will let you use your mouse to draw as you would for Pictionary. You can take turns sharing the screen's whiteboard depending on who's turn it is, and you can put some in charge of keeping time for the person who is drawing.
