We operate 4 hospital sites and deliver services in a range of other settings; we employ around 7,800 staff, and have a turnover in excess of £400m per annum.

About the Department…

The gastroenterology unit is a friendly and supportive team, with a well developed team ethic, which is shared by the junior medical support. In addition, there are a number of Nurse Specialists in endoscopy doing both upper and lower GI endoscopies. There is one Macmillan upper GI nurse specialist to support the upper GI/HPB cancer caseload, an IBD nurse specialist and a further nurse specialist supporting Hepatitis C treatment and alcohol liaison.
