Our Endoscopy Unit provides a service for patients requiring an endoscopic procedure – a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person’s digestive tract.
We are a Joint Advisory Group (JAG) accredited unit and participate in the National Colorectal Screening Programme. The JAG accreditation scheme is a patient-centred and workforce focused scheme developed for all endoscopy services and providers across the UK in the NHS and independent sector.
The unit is staffed by nurse managers who, along with the nursing staff on the day care ward, coordinate procedures on a daily basis.
