The Wolfson Unit for Endoscopy was established in 1996 as a National centre for endoscopy. It is designed to combine a stylish and caring environment with modern high-technology facilities for out-patients and in-patients, whether NHS or private.In 2005 the Unit was awarded National Training Status, and in 2007 was recognised as a World Centre of Excellence by OMED, the World Organization of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and the only Centre in the UK to be recognised in this way.
A full range of therapeutic procedures is performed in the Unit, one of the best equipped in the world. 'state-of-the-art' instruments and accessories, advanced disinfection and sterilising methods, with specialist Endoscopy nurses and doctors, allow us to 'reach the parts other doctors cannot reach' - comfortably and safely.
We pride ourselves on making things easy for our patients, whether unwell or visiting for 'well-patient screening'.
We lead the world in colonoscopy skills and training methods, educating up to 500 doctors and nurses a year in life-saving skills and 'tricks of the trade'.
