The Endoscopy Department offers a complete range of high quality diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic services performed by a team of clinicians from a number of key areas including surgery, urology, gastro-intestinal and respiratory medicine. Working alongside the clinicians are four highly skilled non-medical Endoscopists.
During the past two years the Department has successfully introduced the Government Bowel Screening initiative for the over 50’s and developed a colorectal ultrasound service with the support of one of our leading colorectal surgeons. Respiratory medicine has also seen developments over the past year with the introduction of a bronchoscopic ultrasound service.
The Endoscopy Department is home to four procedure rooms, one of which includes an X-ray imaging facility and four corresponding recovery areas. The Department is working towards national accreditation (JAG) and is fortunate to have a new and modern facility comprising the latest technology and decontamination equipment to serve the future endoscopic needs of all Forth Valley Royal patients.
NHS Forth Valley has secured additional capacity at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Clydebank for patients who require a follow up endoscopy as part of their ongoing monitoring. You may therefore be asked to attend the Golden Jubilee National Hospital if you require a follow up endoscopy.
