Welcome to our Endoscopy and Inflammatory Bowel Disease services. We undertake special investigations with regards to the digestive system and support people with conditions such as Crohn’s and Colitis.

The Endoscopy Unit carries out a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures, as well as other, non-endoscopic procedures for both outpatients and inpatients.

To help you to benefit fully from our services, we have prepared some videos that will provide you with an introduction to our services, help you to understand what to expect and help you to prepare for your hospital visit.
