We run two inpatient teams caring almost exclusively for specialist gastrointestinal cases. We liaise closely with the relevant surgical teams, which includes a jointly managed ward. Outpatient clinics run daily and we also run clinics and endoscopy lists in Romsey and Lymington hospitals. There is a consultant-delivered out-of-hours emergency endoscopy service and weekend/bank holiday consultant review of inpatients.

Consultants in the department provide a general inpatient and outpatient gastroenterology service as well as having a range of subspecialist experience to cover:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Motility
  • Nutrition
  • Pancreatic diseases
  • Specialist endoscopy

The unit has recently acquired a state-of-the-art audio-visual link and hosts training courses.
