Gastroenterology

Departmental overview

The Gastroenterology Department provides an excellent range of services delivered by our dedicated multidisciplinary team of clinicians, nurses and administrative personnel. The department strives to deliver the highest quality care through clinical governance and patient feedback in order to continually improve services.

A range of our endoscopy and bowel cancer screening services have relocated to the Quadram Institute, situated across from the NNUH on Norwich Research Park. Due to increasing demand and a need to screen a broader age range for diagnostic and potential preventative reasons, the NNUH is expanding its services for bowel screening and endoscopy.

The Quadram Institute houses NNUH’s regional endoscopy facility, providing state-of-the-art facilities for patients in a facility where clinicians will work alongside scientists to conduct research to improve human health and wellbeing throughout life. In-patient services will remain at the hospital.

The Gastroenterology team at Quadram Institute will be able to conduct at least 40,000 procedures a year in the facility, making it one of the largest endoscopy centres in Europe.

The multi-million pound facility is a partnership between NNUH, Quadram Institute Bioscience (formerly the Institute of Food Research) and the University of East Anglia (UEA) and will be a world-class centre for food and health research.

The NNUH is one of the largest teaching hospital trusts in the UK and provides a regional bowel screening programme and one of the biggest colorectal surgery and gastrointestinal endoscopy services in the UK.
