Gastroenterology

Our consultant-led gastroenterology team provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient services, including all diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures and our highly regarded endoscopy services which we provide seven days per week.

What we offer
We have a viral hepatitis nurse specialist, a gastroenterology nurse specialist and seven substantive gastroenterologists.

We run general gastroenterology and hepatology along with specialised clinics for inflammatory bowel disease, viral hepatitis and dyspepsia. We also have a weekly target clinic to urgently review patients with suspected malignancy.

We have a busy endoscopy department and perform over 6,000 procedures per year including all diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures.

Patients admitted with either gastroenterology emergencies or for elective procedures will be under the supervision of one of our consultants on a specific gastroenterology ward.

The department has a varied and broad range of sub-specialty interests but we also see patients with general gastrointestinal and hepatological disorders.
