Latest endometriosis NG73 guidelines from NICE

This is a new guideline from NICE on managing endometriosis. I’ll do a general summary of this as it is a new guideline. However I don’t think it changes very much that we do. There is a good algorithm attached to the summary.

Symptoms

We should be suspecting endometriosis in women (even young women under 17) who present with at least 1 of:

  • dysmenorrhoea affecting daily activities and quality of life.
  • deep dyspareunia.
  • chronic pelvic pain.
  • cyclical GI or urinary symptoms (eg painful bowel movements, dysuria or haematuria).
  • infertility if there is also 1 of the above.

Advising women to keep a pain and symptom diary can aid diagnosis.

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
