Endoscopy

We provide a specialist endoscopy service for direct access patients in County Durham and other local areas.

We also provide a comprehensive endoscopy service for elective and emergency inpatients.

We have four Endoscopy Units and they are based at University Hospital of North Durham, Darlington Memorial Hospital, Bishop Auckland Hospital and Shotley Bridge Community Hospital.

Please follow the links below to see short videos explaining some of our procedures:

 

The Bowel Cancer Screening Programme is supported by the Endoscopy Unit at Bishop Auckland Hospital.

'In recent times, I have utilised admissions to Richardson for respite direct from my fracture clinic, even at weekends. I have never worked anywhere with this efficiency before - it is reassuring and invaluable for the patient.'
