Female genital mutilation (FGM) clinic at Guy's and St Thomas'
Comfort Momoh FGM specialist
Comfort Momoh FGM specialist

FGM is illegal in Britain and is a form of child abuse . According to a research study carried out by Dr Comfort Momoh MBE, leading national FGM public health specialist at St Thomas' Hospital, more than half of GPs in London have treated victims of female genital mutilation. Women and girls who have undergone FGM may present to their GP with FGM-related problems such as recurrent urinary tract infection or pain during menstruation.

Healthcare professionals have a significant role to play in preventing FGM. Support and treatment for girls and women are essential to ensure that any resulting health problems are addressed and to optimise treatment and management.

In the past year Dr Momoh has been meeting GPs across London to discuss safeguarding and referral pathways for those who have undergone FGM.

The FGM clinic at St Thomas' offers the following services:

*         Access to information, care and treatment

*         Support and referral to appropriate agencies

*         Counselling

*         Surgical de-infibulation

*         Community support and training for all professionals.

To refer a patient please email Dr Momoh at or phone 020 7188 6872/07956 542576
