Gastroenterology Speciality

Gastroenterology involves the investigation of conditions of the oesophagus, stomach, small bowel, duodenum, colon, liver and pancreas.

It is important to seek advice if you have had a recent change in bowel habit or have been passing blood with your motions, particularly if you are 40 years old or more. It is particularly important if you have any of these symptoms and have a family history of bowel cancer or inflammatory bowel disease (colitis and Crohn's disease).
