About the unit
The endoscopy unit at Northampton General Hospital is a busy department with a highly qualified team.
The unit undertakes approximately 10,000 cases a year for both inpatients and outpatients.
The unit consists of three procedures rooms, an 11 bedded recovery area, a secondary recovery area, decontamination room and bowel preparation room.
On the day of your appointment, please allow sufficient time for parking before your admission.
Please note that due to the drugs used, if sedation is given, you must be collected from the department, and a companion must stay with you for the rest of the day. We will not be able to perform the procedure if this cannot be done.
The endoscopy unit offers a wide range of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for inpatients and outpatients. It is also a bowel cancer screening centre.
