Oxford Rose Clinic

Oxford Rose Clinic is based at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

This is a confidential service providing support for women and girls who have undergone female genital mutilation or cutting (FGM/C).

The clinic is run by a team of female doctors with experience in women's health, chronic pain, psychosexual therapy and psychological medicine.

It offers a wide range of care including:

  • help with gynaecological and bladder issues
  • information about deinfibulation ('opening' procedure)
  • help with pelvic pain
  • psychological support and counselling
  • advice on contraception and sexual health
  • pregnancy.

The team is led by Dr Brenda Kelly, Consultant Obstetrician and Clinical Lead for women with FGM in Oxfordshire.

Clinics run every two weeks on a Friday.

Women can refer themselves to the clinic, or be referred by health visitors, GPs, community midwives or other health professionals.
