Gastroenterology

The Gastroenterology department provides comprehensive care for patients with upper and lower gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary and pancreatic disorders.

Their work includes investigating and treating conditions such as abdominal pain, changes in bowel habit, indigestion, anaemia, Crohn's disease, colitis, hepatitis and other liver problems, as well as functional disorders of the bowel and cancers.


Around 7,000 wide-ranging endoscopy procedures are carried out annually.

All consultations are by appointment. Clinics are usually held on Friday afternoons but appointments can also be made for the early morning or in the evening.

Please note – if you intend to pay directly for your consultation, and not through private health insurance, direct referrals can be accepted.
