Manchester Centre for Gastroenterology and Hepatology
Manchester Centre for Gastroenterology and Hepatology offers a
comprehensive range of services for patients, including general
gastroenterology, hepatology, pancreatology, inflammatory bowel
disease, advanced endoscopy and nutrition. Patients may be
referred by their GP or from another hospital. 11 consultants
are supported by a number of specialist nurses who offer treatment,
counselling and advice for patients. Inpatients are generally
treated in one of the gastroenterology wards AM3 and AM4, which also encompasses the
Programmed Investigations Unit (PIU).
Many patients with gastroenterological problems undergo
investigations with endoscopy (camera examinations of the
bowel). Click here for the endoscopy department. Many patients are
referred to the X-ray department for investigations or
procedures, for example liver biopsy under ultrasound guidance.
Some patients may be treated at our GI Physiology unit, and gastroenterology
patients may also be referred to our Nuclear Medicine department.
The Centre is committed to research, training and education. We
are a tertiary referral centre and a teaching hospital, although
there is no obligation for patients to see medical students or be
part of trials.
The Manchester Centre for Gastroenterology and Hepatology
is located on the 2nd Floor of Manchester Royal Infirmary, Oxford
Road, Manchester, M13 9WL
