Endoscopy Unit

LBH Endoscopy Unit

The Endoscopy Unit at London Bridge

Hospital has the capability to carry out a

wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic

endoscopy procedures.

Our facilities include the latest advances in endoscopic

equipment to aid in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention

of disorders of the pancreas, liver, gallbladder, oesophagus,

stomach, small intestine and colon, as well as offering

a bronchoscopy and Endobronchial Ultrasound Service

(EBUS). Our consultants provide a fully comprehensive

endoscopy service to carry out further investigations of

symptoms, including abdominal bloating and pain, change

of bowel habit, constipation, difficulty swallowing, rectal pain

and bleeding. The department also offers an oesophageal

manometry and pH study service to investigate reflux,

heartburn and swallowing difficulties.

London Bridge Hospital offers more complex procedures

than any other UK private hospital and was the first private

hospital in the UK to offer EBUS. Other procedures include

complex ERCP, RFA for Barrett’s Oesophagus and Video

Capsule Endoscopy.

Accreditation

In November 2014, the unit was awarded JAG Accreditation.

The JAG Scheme is a patient-centred and workforce-focused

scheme based on the principle of independent assessment

against recognised standards. The scheme was developed

for all endoscopy services and providers across the UK in

the NHS and independent sector.
