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.

In 2018, a range of our endoscopy and bowel cancer screening services are relocating to the Quadram Institute, situated across from the NNUH on Norwich Research Park.

The Quadram Institute will house 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 £75m facility is scheduled to open in 2018 and will be a world-class centre for food and health research and will bring together the Institute of Food Research (IFR), the University of East Anglia (UEA) and NNUH.

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.
