RS_AW005The GAU is a dedicated 24/7 assessment area for women with acute gynaecological problems and early pregnancy complications. HEFT has 2 units, one at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital and one at Good Hope Hospital.   Elective and emergency work is done each day, this includes ultrasound scanning, assessments, investigations.

We offer 5 treatments of miscarriage care & 3 treatments for treating ectopic pregnancy, following the NICE recommendations and gold standard service.

The units also includes an early pregnancy unit and  recurrent miscarriage clinic, where investigations are offered to see why the miscarriages are happening and support in subsequent pregnancies.  The unit is dedicated to finding new causes and treatments to prevent miscarriage and is currently running 3 randomised controlled trials.

Clinical Nurse Specialists  are trained nurse specialised in early pregnancy care.   Our nursing staff are committed to early pregnancy care and  work at a national level.  Our lead Nurse specialist for the units is also the chair of the Association of Early Pregnancy Units, the first nurse to achieve this position.  The AEPU sets standards in early pregnancy working closely with the RCOG, NICE & RCN.
