There are two procedure rooms which enable two Endoscopists to complete lists at the same time. Approximately 3500 endoscopy procedures are undertaken each year.
There are 12 trolley bays in the main ward area and 2 side rooms with en-suite facilities. Separate male and female lists are accommodated within the department in order to ensure the utmost privacy, dignity and respect for our service users. Disabled facilities are available.
The procedures are carried out by Endoscopists who are medical or surgical consultants or Nurse Specialists. The Endoscopy team is made up of Registered Nurses, Healthcare Support Workers and clerical staff.
We also have medical & nursing students on placements from University of Southampton and Bournemouth University.
