Upgrade of MRI Endoscopy Unit
The Endoscopy Unit at Manchester Royal Infirmary is to close
from 3rd April to 28th July 2017 for a major
upgrade to improve facilities for patients and visitors.
During this time, some appointments will be provided at Trafford
General Hospital while others will still take place at the MRI in
alternative temporary locations.
A shuttle bus service operates free of charge between the MRI
and Trafford General Hospital - see the Trafford getting to
hospital section on the website for details.
The endoscopy suite is a state-of-the-art facility that provides
comfortable surroundings for patients undergoing endoscopy
procedures. The modern, high-tech equipment available allows for
the most up-to-date procedures (such as endoscopic retrograde
cholangio-pancreatography - ERCP, spy glass endoscopy, endoscopic
ultrasound, double balloon endoscopy and capsule endoscopy) to be
carried out on patients.
