The GI Unit at The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth is a multidisciplinary group comprised of gastroenterologists, upper and lower GI Surgeons, Radiologists and oncologists. Many of the unit's consultants have senior positions in London's top teaching hospitals, bringing this expertise and experience to the unit. Our leading consultants and specialist physicians put patients' needs first, performing to the quickest time frames possible. Meeting to discuss every individual patient's condition is key to devising the best possible care programme to suit each patient.
Our team is supported by the latest endoscopic and diagnostic technology.
Many of our doctors in the GI Unit are involved in ground-breaking research, making them the most sought after specialists in their field. Dieticians, psychologists and nutritionists are all available to provide patient-centred care.
Common abdominal symptoms such as rectal bleeding, change in bowel habit and abdominal pain can be distressing for patients. In most cases, the symptoms are not due to underlying health problems (common cases include haemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, reflux). However, for more serious cases, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment is key to recovery.
In our state-of-the-art facilities we treat a range of gastrointestinal conditions, including both common and uncommon disorders of the digestive tract including:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Change in Bowel Habit
- Rectal Bleeding
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease
- Liver Disease
