What happens you’re referred to Gastroenterology
We’ll send you a letter for an appointment with a gastroenterology consultant or a member of our team. They’ll discuss your condition with you. You may need tests or further investigation to diagnose you accurately before they recommend and begin treatment.
Nurse specialists and dieticians run some of our clinics. We can do some of our follow up appointments over the phone.
We run gastroenterology clinics at Amersham, Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe hospitals.
We may need to admit you to hospital if you need an operation. Our inpatient ward is at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
In some cases, you may need more specialised treatment.
If you need surgery and have complex needs, a specialist team of physiotherapists and occupational therapists work with the ward discharge coordinator, ward doctors and nurses to plan your discharge from hospital.
