Due to the review of the COVID-19 restrictions, we are still providing our normal services.
However, we do require proof of a COVID vaccination certificate in order to attend the rooms for your consultation.
One vaccination and a negative COVID screening test will also allow an in-person consult.
Otherwise, telehealth services are still available for any patient who prefers not to attend the rooms. Please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions.

What is pill capsule endoscopy?

Capsule Endoscopy is used to look for bleeding in hidden areas in the small bowel. It is also useful for diagnosing small bowel tumours and obscure abdominal pain. The procedure involves swallowing a small capsule which is wirelessly connected to a recording device. The capsule travels through the small bowel like a piece of food, taking many pictures which are transmitted to the recorder. The pictures are then downloaded onto a computer where a video is created and viewed by the doctor. A report is then written and results discussed at your appointment.
