For patients suffering from a wide variety of conditions relating to the liver and digestive tract (gullet, stomach and bowel).

Our gastroenterology service treats patients with conditions ranging from common problems such as gallstones, heartburn and haemorrhoids through to complex conditions of the oesophagus and long-term (chronic) illnesses such as chronic liver disease and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). We also care for patients suffering from a range of cancers including stomach, pancreas and bowel.
 
We also provide a full range of endoscopy procedures and treatments.
 
In addition we offer:
  • Hypnotherapy for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).  
  • Dedicated clinics for the management of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) along with a telephone advice line for patients.
  • Clinics for assessments for patients with a family history of bowel cancer and preventative testing to avoid cancer in the future.
  • Specialist clinics for patients with alcohol related problems.
 
As well as delivering high quality clinic and outpatient work, many of our highly skilled team members also have local and national roles in specialist areas of the NHS including education and training of student doctors, clinical research, the development of endoscopy services and the National Bowel Cancer Screening Programme.
