Excellent quality of service is important to us, so our dedicated and highly trained team strives to provide an endoscopy service that is rewarded by patient satisfaction, in a bright clean refurbished endoscopy suit.
An endoscopy procedure is described as either diagnostic, when a cause for patients’ symptoms needs to be discovered, or therapeutic, where treatment can be administered to ease a patient’s diagnosis or disease.
The term endoscopy can describe a variety of procedures and so may cause some confusion; it is therefore preferable to use the specific terminology:
Endoscopy is a highly technical area of healthcare where patients can feel vulnerable resulting in high levels of anxiety. Our aim is to use resources effectively to inform and ensure patient safety by providing continuity of care from assessment, through the admission process, during the procedure and recovery phase to discharge.
