Gastroenterology and Hepatology clinics at Kingston Hospital take place in the Red corridor on the 1st Floor of the Outpatients Department. The Gastroenterology ward is Hardy Ward on Level 6 of Esher Wing.
Our gastroenterology team is based at Kingston Hospital but provides community clinics at Raynes Park Health Centre and Glenlyn Medical Centre (East Molesey).
The team see more than 2,400 new patients and 3,750 follow-up patients every year. The gastroenterology department provides a comprehensive service for the diagnosis and care of patients with a wide range of gastroenterological and liver conditions and symptoms including: inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), irritable bowel disease (IBS), bowel and stomach cancer, jaundice, cirrhosis, hepatitis, acid reflux and coeliac disease.
Gastroenterology looks at issues related to the digestive system. It includes not only the whole length of the gut, from swallowing to excretion, but also two important organs, the pancreas and liver, and the ducts through which their secretions enter the intestine. Hepatology deals with diseases affecting the liver.
