Who Are We?

Bar-None Healthcare have provided an open access endoscopy service for patients in South Warwickshire and neighbouring areas for many years. Patients are referred directly by their GP, avoiding the need for an out-patient appointment beforehand. All of the endoscopies are carried out on the Endoscopy Unit at Warwick Hospital by experienced endoscopists, including GP endoscopists, a specialist nurse and consultants.

The endoscopy unit provides both in-patient and outpatient services for patients requiring endoscopic procedures, comprising:
- Gastroscopy (Therapeutic and diagnostic)
- Colonoscopy (Therapeutic and diagnostic)
- Flexi-Sigmoidoscopy (Therapeutic and diagnostic)
- Cystoscopy (Therapeutic and diagnostic)

Where are we and our opening times?
The Endoscopy Unit is open 08:00 to 18:30 Monday to Friday, and the building is situated next to the disabled car park opposite the main hospital entrance.
The majority of patients using the service are seen on a day case basis. The unit also provides a service for adult patients admitted to the ward on a planned and unplanned basis. An On Call service is provided outside of routine hours by an on call medical or surgical endoscopist and endoscopy nurses via switchboard.
