Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a procedure where clinicians can examine a person’s internal organs with the use of a long, thin tube called an endoscope.

This is inserted into the body, usually through the mouth and throat, and the camera on the end of the tube relays images onto a television screen. Endoscopy is used to investigate symptoms such as persistent abdominal or chest pain, nausea and vomiting, unexplained weight loss and persistent diarrhoea.

We provide endoscopy at some of our community hospitals. You can be referred to this service by your GP.
