The gastrointestinal tract comprises the system of tubes that transport food from the mouth and discharge waste from the anus. The Colorectal speciality is mostly concerned with the lower part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which can be sub-divided into the colon, small bowel, and the rectum itself.
If you are experiencing any of these common concerns, consider booking a private appointment with one of our colorectal specialists.
Patients are regularly referred by a GP for the following symptoms:
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, your consultant will discuss the appropriate investigations required for a fast and accurate diagnosis. We routinely conduct further investigations on patients experiencing the above, utilising a qFIT test for bowel screening, blood tests, gastroscopy, colonoscopy, MRI and CT scans, all available at Ross Hall Hospital.

Bowel Cancer Screening - Ross Hall Hospital offers a total package of care for bowel screening. Patients are able to book into see a colorectal consultant without symptoms if they are looking for peace of mind that their bowel is healthy. Patients will have a consultation, a qFIT test to check for blood in faeces, and further tests if there is anything present after the qFIT test. This is available to anyone 18+ without symptoms and is all done very quickly and efficiently.
During your initial consultation, your colorectal specialist will first learn about your medical history, your family’s medical history and your symptoms to get a clear picture of the situation, your concerns and determine the appropriate next steps.
Depending on your symptoms and medical history, they will then usually examine the rectum and lower part of the colon using a specialist piece of equipment called a rigid sigmoidoscope. This small device uses light to allow a colorectal specialist to examine the area effectively.
Based on their findings, your colorectal consultant may request some further investigative tests to assess your condition. Occasionally, a flexible sigmoidoscopy may be required to enable the surgeon to see deeper into the colon.
Further diagnostic tests may be required following this. In some cases, it might be possible for you to have a scan or test on the same day as your initial consultation, but usually, we would arrange the test for a few days to a couple of weeks after your initial appointment at a time and day that suits you.
At Ross Hall Hospital, our patients have access to a hugely comprehensive service for private colorectal diagnostics and treatments, all under one roof. With cutting-edge facilities, you’ll always benefit from a quick and accurate diagnosis.
Once the tests have been completed, and the results are ready, a follow-up appointment will be arranged with your consultant to discuss the results and determine the best form of tailored treatment for you.
Patients will undergo a thorough assessment and receive quick and easy access to leading investigative diagnostics, non-surgical management and treatments with cutting-edge technology and modern facilities.
