Endoscopy

We have two purpose built endoscopy units here at the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust. One located at The Calderdale Royal hospital, the other at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

Each site has a reception area, admission rooms, 3 theatre suites, recovery area and facilities for pre-assessment and a fully equipped decontamination facility.

The service offers a range of procedures listed below, patients are referred  from different specialties to the service. The specialties include, gastroenterology, the National Bowel Screening service, respiratory, urology and general surgery.

Endoscopy is performed by consultant gastroenterologists and surgeons, accredited doctors and specially trained non-medical endoscopists. The endoscopists and nursing team work across the two sites to support the service delivery.

Please note your appointment time on the day of your procedure is the time we would like you to arrive at the endoscopy unit,  this is not the time you should expect to have your procedure.

Endoscopy procedures vary in length of time to complete therefore it is not possible for us to give you an exact time. If you appointment is before midday then you may be in the department all morning, if its after midday you may be with us all afternoon.

More information can be found on the NHS website Endoscopy - NHS (www.nhs.uk)
