Who might I see?

Gastroenterologists are doctors with specialist training and experience in the investigation and management of symptoms and diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.

You will be allocated a named consultant gastroenterologist. They will be responsible for your overall care and be kept up to date with your progress, but you will not necessarily see them at each appointment. The consultants are supported by a team of doctors undergoing higher specialist training and research (registrars and fellows), specialist nurses, nurse endoscopists, technicians and Allied Health Professionals. 

Patient information leaflets

We produce a wide range of leaflets which provide information about our services and about the treatment you might receive in our clinics or during your stay in hospital. 

We also produce these in different formats including large print, please contact the department you are visiting for more information.
