Abnormal or inadequate smear results can prove an extremely anxious time for any woman. We provide Colposcopy tests and results in 5-10 days.


An abnormal smear result can often lead to a woman requiring further investigation. At Kingsbridge Private Hospital, we provide rapid access to a private colposcopy service at our clinic on the prestigious Lisburn Road. 

Our private and confidential colposcopy service is delivered by experienced, local Consultant Gynaecologist’s who ensure you are treated with the upmost dignity and respect throughout your consultation. 

At your appointment, the consultant looks at the cervix directly under magnification in order to determine if there is any abnormality that could be a pre-cancerous change. 

The method is similar to a smear test and any abnormal cells are biopsied, removing a pinch of skin about half the size of a grain of rice. A Lletz procedure may be required under local anaesthetic to remove all of the abnormal cells. For most women the examination is painless, however, some may find it a little uncomfortable. 

It is possible to perform a colposcopy examination when you are pregnant or have your period, however, we would advise that you call the clinic so that we may inform your consultant prior to your appointment. 

Colposcopy Test and Results

The examination will take approximately 15 minutes but we would ask that you allow up to one hour for your visit. Following your appointment, your biopsy will be sent to the labs and results will be returned in approximately 5-10 days. Your test results will be provided at a review appointment with your consultant.

If you would like to book an appointment or require further information on the available options, please do not hesitate to contact our private patient booking team via our online enquiry form.

Patient Testimonials

"I was in your facility yesterday for a day procedure (operation on my left arm). I wanted to write and express how impressed I was with the facilities and more importantly the staff on the Ward.

Everyone was excellent, and I mean excellent, i don't normally write congratulatory e-mails so this is high praise in my view. The Senior nurse was excellent, as was the Theatre nurse and the anaesthetist. Even the assistants that helped with catering and other duties. All came together to form a great impression of the establishment." Jason Carpal Tunnel Surgery, Kingsbridge Patient
"Amazing 5-star hospital.  Have had other surgery here before on my back.
Yesterday's was a neck disc replacement operation.  I would highly recommend this hospital like a hotel manner. Thanks again guys." Mr Phillips, Kingsbridge Patient
"As hospitals go this one is pretty amazing! Had surgery with Mr Molloy at the end of October and have another one the end of this month. Mr Molloy is a gentleman who puts you at ease right away and ensured my last procedure went smoothly! From start to finish all the hospital staff go above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable and stress free as possible. The facilities are brilliant with the rooms spacious and modern to recover in. Keep up the good work!" Ms Roulston, Kingsbridge Patient
"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ... Thank you to all!" Ms Cheong, Kingsbridge Patient
"Currently just back from recovery on the ward. I have just had ACL reconstructive surgery on my left knee. What can I say? This place is brilliant. I arrived at 8.35am, taken to the ward at 8.45am (my admission time was 9am). Tended to by a lovely Nurse. Dr Roger Wilson spoke to me around 9.45am, in Theatre for 10am, recovery for 11.10am and now currently back on ward. These guys are awesome. From the consultant to anaesthetist to nurses to cater assistants. Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I am so grateful to everyone at Kingsbridge for the service." Mr McNicholl, Kingsbridge Patient
