endoscopy servicesExcellent quality of service is important to us and with our dedicated and our highly trained team we strive to provide an Endoscopy Service that is highly rewarded by patient satisfaction, in a bright clean refurbished Endoscopy suit.

The term Endoscopy literally means to “to look and see” it can describe a variety of procedures; it a term that is widely used and may cause some confusion, it is therefore preferable to use specific terminology:

An Endoscopy procedure is described as either diagnostic, when a cause for patients’ symptoms may be discovered or therapeutic, where treatment can be administered to ease a patient’s diagnoses or disease.

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. We endeavour to understand our patients as an individual so that their emotional and physical needs are met, communication will be open and honest with all patients and staff, including relatives and carers as appropriate without breaches in confidentiality.
