The right answers the first time

Your visit will begin with one of our registered nurses, who will discuss your personal and family history with you and, if required, take blood for testing. You will then see one of our private consultant gastroenterologists, who will dive deeper into your condition. Your consultant will discuss with you further testing options to precisely diagnose your condition, along with any management or treatment plans that are appropriate. In some cases, this may involve an endoscopy or virtual colonoscopy using a CT scanner, which can be provided by our in-clinic diagnostic services.

If necessary, your GI consultant will review your test results with a team of experts in London and the U.S. to develop a treatment plan individualised to your exact condition and needs.
