Endoscopy is a procedure where clinicians can examine a person’s oesophagus stomach or large bowel, using a flexible instrument containing a camera.
Endoscopy is used to investigate symptoms such as persistent abdominal discomfort, nausea and vomiting, unexplained weight loss, persistent diarrhoea, change in bowel habit and rectal bleeding.
We provide endoscopy at some of our community hospitals. You can be referred to this service by your GP.
