The service is provided by Consultant Gastroenterologists, Colorectal Surgeons and Respiratory Medicine Physicians. The consultants are supported by a dedicated and experienced team of Endoscopy Nurses and Health Care Technicians. Our state of the art Endoscopy Unit opened in July 2015, it consists of two fully equipped procedure rooms, a recovery bay and a step down area.
