Gastroenterology

Gastroenterology is medical speciality which focuses on the digestive system and includes the study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the gastrointestinal tract. These may affect the esophagus (swallowing tube), stomach, small and large intestine, rectum, liver, gallbladder or pancreas.

The Gastroenterology team is made up of six Consultants, supported by specialist nurses who deliver nurse-led clinics and care, as well as support to patients with all types of gastroenterology disease. There are also staff grade doctors within the team.  Together they provide a comprehensive gastroenterology service.
