Effect of nurse colposcopists on a hospital-based service

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle



The number of colposcopies performed annually in the UK is increasing. Nurse colposcopists have been introduced by many units to cope with this workload. The small amount of evidence to support the introduction of nurse colposcopists suggests that nurses are viable alternative providers of colposcopy. This study compares the performance of nurse colposcopists with that of doctors.
