Gastroenterology

We provide care for a wide range of Gastro Intestinal conditions ranging from functional bowel disorders to more complex organic disease such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and Gastro Intestinal cancers.

We have access to the latest diagnostic tests and work closely with colleagues in Radiology and Histopathology.

We provide both diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures, including:

  • Gastroscopy (a test to look inside the oesophagus, stomach and duodenum)
  • Colonoscopy (a test to assess your colon)
  • ERCP (a procedure that uses an endoscope and x-rays to look at the bile duct and pancreatic duct)

We are also a recognised screening centre for the Bowel Cancer Screening Programme (BCSP) (please see Bowel Screening). 

What to expect

You will receive an outpatient appointment inviting you to a consultation in Day Services Outpatients.

If you need to be admitted to hospital, then you will be cared for on Neptune Ward.
