We have two dedicated Endoscopy units and are proud that both have achieved JAG status – an accreditation for units providing high quality services and demonstrating best practice.
Procedures are performed by endoscopists and supported by experienced trained endoscopy nurses and health care assistants.
We carry out around 1,800 procedures each month with services provided in integrated units with a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. The majority of patients using the service are seen on a day-case basis. We also provide a service for adults admitted to the wards on a planned and unplanned basis, along with an out-of-hours Upper Gastrointestinal bleed service.
The units have three permanently equipped rooms at each site, providing a variety of procedures including:
- Oesophago-gastro-duodenoscopy (OGD)
- Flexible sigmoidoscopy
- Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio Pancreatography
- Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG)
