London's first private JAG-accredited centre for gastrointestinal endoscopy

21 Wellington Hospital , St Johns Wood , London, NW8 9SQ

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.
