An endoscopy is a procedure where the inside of your body is examined using an instrument called an endoscope. An endoscope is a long, thin, flexible tube that has a light source and camera at one end which is used to look inside the stomach or bowel.
This is a safe and very effective way for you to be examined for evidence of bleeding, swelling, unusual growths or ulcers and can also be used to look for early signs of cancer in the lower bowel.

InHealth has been providing patients and commissioners with rapid access to high quality endoscopy services in community gastroenterology clinics for over 10 years.
Leading the way in direct access services we work closely with primary care clinicians and commissioners to support the management of patients in the community and reduce waiting times at our local hospitals. We design locally agreed integrated pathways helping CCGs provide patient centred community endoscopy services through a one stop service.
Our services include Transnasal & Oral Gastroscopy, Flexible Sigmoidoscopy, Colonoscopy, Bowel Scoping, Community Gastroenterology Clinics.
We are fully committed to on-going investment in technology which delivers clinically dependable results to GPs, more efficiently and more cost effectively than ever. We use state-of-the-art Olympus equipment to deliver the best possible outcomes and comfort for patients.
InHealth was the first to introduce Trans Nasal gastroscopy to the UK and offers this option wherever possible. We are also the first independent provider to have been selected to deliver the 2 week wait cancer pathway for endoscopy patients.
