Welcome to the Endoscopy Centre

In our Endoscopy centre, we offer screening for bowel cancer or diagnosis and treatment for diseases that affect the digestive system, including the oesophagus, stomach, colon and rectum. For example, some of our consultants specialise in endoscopic examination of the small bowel and of the pancreatic and bile ducts. If your case is complex, they’ll discuss your diagnosis and treatment plan with many other clinicians. It’s their combined skill and judgement that delivers the best outcomes for patients.

Our facilities include the latest advances in endoscopic equipment to support the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the pancreas, liver, gallbladder, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon.

Our strength lies within the excellence of our clinical teams; we have an exceptional team of consultants and nursing staff whose skills and experience enable us to provide seamless, bespoke, multidisciplinary care for all our patients.

When you are a patient in our Endoscopy Centre you will have a dedicated consultant who will always follow you through your treatment with us. If you have any additional questions, you will be fully supported by our clinical nurse specialists.

Rapid diagnosis supported by expert radiologists

We work with some of the finest radiologists in the country. Our diagnostic potential is only as good as our clinicians which is why we are proud to be supported by some of the UKs leading radiologists. There are no waiting lists and you will normally have your report the same day.
