Gastroenterology deals with conditions and diseases of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and digestive system, which includes anything from the mouth to the bottom and everything in between. Gastroenterologists study the physiology of the gastrointestinal organs, including how food is moving through the stomach and intestine, how nutrients are being digested and absorbed, how the waste is removed, and the function of the liver.

The majority of our patients come to us when they feel discomfort in the stomach and bowel area. Gastrointestinal issues also commonly occur in the liver, gallbladder and pancreas.

The intricate nature and number of possible affected areas demand a comprehensive collection of facilities and an expert team led by a specialist consultant to diagnose and treat thoroughly.

If you are suffering from any gastrointestinal symptoms, you should consider scheduling a private appointment with a specialised consultant. Gastroenterologists regularly see patients with:

  • Heartburn
  • Abdominal pain or discomfort
  • Constipation or diarrhoea
  • Gallstones
  • Pancreatitis
  • Unexplained vomiting
  • Anaemia
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Rectal bleeding

Your consultant will discuss suitable investigative tests and treatments for a quick and accurate diagnosis. We usually carry out further investigations for patients utilising our in-house MRI, CT Scan, endoscopy and ultrasound tests, all available at Ross Hall Hospital.

Conditions affecting the gastrointestinal area range from common occurrences to more chronic and serious diseases.

The specialists also commonly treat patients with the following conditions:

  • Reflux disease
  • Peptic ulcers
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Bowel polyps
  • Symptoms of bowel cancer (supported by colorectal consultants and oncologists)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Consultations, diagnosis and treatment are tailored to you and conducted by leading gastroenterology specialists from the skilled multidisciplinary team at Ross Hall Hospital.

Patients can book an initial appointment through the enquiries team at Ross Hall Hospital, who will offer you an appointment at a time that suits you. They will also provide all the information you need to prepare yourself for your initial consultation with a Gastroenterologist.

You can opt to pay for your own treatment as a self-pay patient, and our team will provide you with the consultation fee of the consultant you're booking with. If you're using your medical insurance to pay for your care, it is important that you obtain an authorisation code from them before you come for your appointment.

Your initial consultation will typically last around 20-30minutes, during which the gastroenterologist will learn about and evaluate your symptoms and medical history to get a precise picture of the situation, your concerns and to determine the appropriate course of action.

Your gastroenterologist may carry out some examinations and tests to assess your possible condition further depending on your specific symptoms or condition.

In some cases, we might be able to arrange the test on the same day as your first consultation, but usually, we would arrange it for a few days after your appointment at a time and day that suits you. If you need a diagnostic endoscopy procedure, this may be booked up to two weeks from your appointment.

These are some common tests that your gastroenterologist may recommend:

  • MRI scan - This uses a magnetic field to create a detailed image of the inside of your body, invaluable in the diagnosis and treatment of gastrointestinal conditions.

  • CT scan - Often referred to as CAT Scans, X-rays are used to produce detailed images of your internal structures.

  • Endoscopy/colonoscopy - Involves inserting a long, thin tube into the body via the mouth or anus to observe internal systems in great detail.

  • Ultrasound - Uses sound waves to produce a detailed image of the inside of the body.

  • pH study - This may be necessary to measure the acid levels in your gullet tube.

On completion of the tests or scans, a follow-up appointment will be organised to go over the results of your test with your consultant and to discuss treatment going forward. 

If further testing, surgery, or referral to another specialist within the hospital is required, we'll make sure you fully understand the process and answer any and all questions you may have, and arrange the next stages of your treatment for you.

The gastroenterology unit at Ross Hall Hospital is ready for you if you've been experiencing uncomfortable digestive symptoms and want to get seen by a specialist straight away, have been referred by your general practitioner or have been referred by another department within the hospital.


If any further treatment is required, we offer fast access to the highest quality healthcare at a time convenient to you. Comprehensive and modern facilities are available for patients to ensure convenient diagnostics and access to prescriptions and advice for gastroenterology medication.
