PCOS can usually be managed in primary care and secondary care referral is rarely indicated. See below for guidelines on diagnosis and management:

Please refer to the guidelines for the diagnosis and management of PCOS (word document) produced by Dr Rachel Brown, Gynaecology GPSI

There is also advice on diagnosis and management in Clinical Knowledge Summaries




If a secondary care opinion is required then consider using the Gynaecology advice and guidance service initially which can be accessed via eRS.

Also see the Fertility section of Remedy for advice on referral for fertility issues in PCOS including clomiphene (criteria based access policy applies).
