Our endoscopy unit as also known as the Gemini suite.
We are a very busy unit seeing approximately 8000 patients each year. The majority of these patients are booked for gastroscopies, flexi sigmoidoscopies and colonoscopies. But we also see patients for Cystoscopies and bronchoscopies.
Our patients are seen by a specialist team of gastro-enterologists, respiratory physicians, colorectal surgeons, upper GI surgeons and urologists. The patients are referred to the endoscopy unit once they have been seen in clinic by a consultant or by their GPs.
THIS IS NOT A SELF REFFERAL SERVICE.
The demand for endoscopy services is increasing year after year.
As well as seeing on average 160 out-patients per week, we also deal with inpatient emergencies as they occur and provide a 24 hour, 7 days a week emergency rota for upper GI bleeds.
The aim of the staff here in the Gemini suite is to ensure, as our patient, that your experience in endoscopy is as comfortable and reassuring as possible.
