Consultant Gastroenterologists - Update
Published: 28 June 2018
We would like to make you aware that two of our long-standing Consultant Gastroenterologists, Dr Neil Galletly and Dr Anton Bungay are leaving New Victoria Hospital and indeed the UK, for China and the USA respectively. We will be very sorry to lose these colleagues who have been strong supporters of the hospital over the years and who have provided a superb service to their patients. We wish them well for their futures.
Both Dr Galletly and Dr Bungay have confirmed they are happy for their existing and new patients to be referred to their colleagues here at New Victoria, and we would like to take this opportunity to update you on our highly experienced Consultant Gastroenterologists, who can offer exceptional care and treatment to your patients. I am sure you will be familiar with Dr Andy Poullis and Dr Sarah Clark, who have held practising privileges at New Victoria Hospital for some time. Over the last couple of years, we have been delighted to also welcome on-board Dr Markus Gess, Dr Rishi Goel, Dr Simona Di Caro and most recently Dr Ralph Greaves. All of our Consultant Gastroenterologists hold NHS substantive posts and details of these along with their clinical specialties can be found on the accompanying page. Full profiles for each of them can be found our hospital website here: www.newvictoria.co.uk/speciality/gastroenterology-consultants
As no doubt you are aware, in September 2016 we opened a brand new building – The Victoria Foundation Wing, which includes a terrific new endoscopy suite, offering an exceptional facility in which our Gastroenterologists can treat patients.
All of our Consultant Gastroenterologists hold regular outpatient clinics, and between them can see patients every day of the week. Bookings can be made by contacting: 020 8949 9020.
