Improvements To Endoscopy Unit Facilities Receive Positive Feedback From Patients 

Patients who need diagnostic internal investigations can now benefit from improved facilities in more comfortable surroundings following a redesign and refurbishment of the Endoscopy Unit at Salisbury District Hospital.

Endoscopy involves the use of small cameras which relay pictures from inside the body to a television screen and can be used on the unit to detect problems in the upper and lower digestive system from the throat to the bowel.

The redesign provides a clear flow through the unit from admission, recovery to discharge and will enable patients to be admitted and discharged in a quiet room.

Alison Montgomery, Senior Sister on the Endoscopy Unit said: “The new facilities are already having an impact and we have received very positive feedback from our patients.”

Notes to editors:

The Endoscopy Unit is accredited by the Endoscopy Joint Advisory Group.

Staff on the Endoscopy Unit recently won a Striving for Excellence Award. The Unit received a number of nominations from patients who highlighted the professional, friendly and compassionate care they provided in often difficult personal and sensitive circumstances.
