During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

Southern Endometriosis Centre

Last updated: 09 October 2019

D level

(BSGE Accredited Centre)

What we do

The endometriosis clinic at Queen Alexandra Hospital will see patients from all over the southern region, many who have been referred from their GP because they require a specialist opinion. We work with a variety of patients, including those awaiting diagnosis or others who may have a long history of the condition.

On your first visit, you will be seen by a specialist consultant or their registrar who will take a detailed history from you, including current medications and previous surgery. If any further investigations are required the consultant can organise these for you.

We offer Endometriosis specialist clinics. Clear treatment pathways are agreed with women affected with the condition; this may mean surgery but could also involve pain medication, hormonal treatments or lifestyle advice.

  • Miss Nadine Di Donato, Lead specialist consultant
  • Katie-Ellen Candy, Clinical Nurse Specialist
