What do Gastroenterologists do?
Gastroenterologists are specialists who look after the stomach, bowels and liver. They see and investigate patients with a range of symptoms including indigestion, abdominal pain, bloating, change in bowel habit, weight loss, and/or bleeding from the bowel.
What services do they offer?
Our specialist clinicians offer a range of consultation and investigation options.
New Patient Consultation
This is an introductory 30 minute consultation to determine the cause of your symptoms. As part of this consultation the specialist will ask questions about your symptoms, examine you and suggest if any tests are required.
These tests may include blood tests, which can be taken immediately; other tests such as scans or endoscopy/colonoscopy that can be arranged quickly and conveniently at time that suits you.
After the consultation a letter summarising the consultation and any recommendations for investigations is provided electronically to you and with your permission to your GP.
Digestive health is often improved by an overview of dietary habits. All customers of our Gastroenterology services will be offered the opportunity to meet our Dietician at a discounted rate, to receive advice tailored to their requirements.
We offer Calprotectin testing - a non invasive test that can help distinguish between inflammatory and non inflammatory causes of bowel symptoms - for more information on this test click here.
