Visiting times

As we are an outpatient service visiting is not appropriate. Patients can be dropped off and collected when their procedure has been undertaken.

About Our Service

Endoscopy provides a diagnostic service catering for both Upper and Lower Gastrointestinal and Chest investigations.

Investigations of The Upper and Lower Gastrointestinal Tract and of the Lungs are carried out within our JAG Accredited Unit.

Our service is used by both inpatients and outpatients.

We are here to quickly and safely investigate your symptoms.

Providing high level of expertise in both diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy.

Our Expertise

Our experienced and accredited Endoscopists all carry out endoscopy to national standards, with their practice audited twice yearly to ensure that National JAG standards are achieved. We carry out camera procedures in the Lungs and The Stomach and Colon to diagnose benign and malignant conditions.

We also undertake therapeutic Endoscopy to treat growths without the need for surgery.

Dilated vessels can be banded. And strictures dilated with balloons. Abnormal blood vessels can be sealed with argon ablation.

We are also currently fundraising for further advanced state-of-the-art equipment, for information on our Scope Guide Fund Appeal see here.
