During your stay in hospital you will meet a number of different members of staff.  All members of staff wear name badges, but if you are not sure who someone is or what they do, please feel free to ask them to introduce themselves and explain what they do. 

If you have any questions about your treatment, please ask a doctor or a nurse.

There are lots of opportunities for you to get involved with the Trust, from volunteering to attending our public meetings, our Annual General Meeting or our hospital open day which is held every year.

The gastroenterology service offers full investigation and management of all gastroenterological conditions and liver disease including inflammatory bowel disease, coeliac disease, dyspepsia and Barrett’s oesophagus among many others.

Following a referral into the service via e-referral, a consultant will review it and advise of a plan to support the patient with their care.

This service has a nationally renowned endoscopy unit offering comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy services, accepting both local and regional referrals.

The Gastroenterology Department is fully staffed, comprising of nine gastroenterologists and four hepatologists who are accompanied by registrars, junior doctors and clinical nurse specialist teams.

Clinic appointments are offered in a virtual or face-to-face setting, depending on clinical appropriateness.

Core phone hours: 9.30am to 12pm and 2pm to 4.30pm
