Checked: 12-01-2018 by katy.kearley Next Review: 12-01-2019

Service Overview

The gastroenterology advice and guidance service is able to provide advice regarding all types of luminal gastroenterology (ie. anything bowel related). Please do not send advice requests regarding hepatology to this service.

Please note that as of 15th January 2018, Advice & Guidance requests will no longer be processed by the BRS. All requests will now be submitted directly to the Gastroenterology Advice & Guidance Service at UHB using e-Referral.

UHB are committed to utilising E-Referral for this purpose. Please be aware, that there is a risk the trust may return your request if you do not follow the preferred pathway.

Should you have any questions or would like to raise any issues, please contact BRS in the first instance on 0117 900 2566.

 

PRIME - You may also like to consider the PRIME community gastroenterology service as alternative to secondary care referral. This service is run by experienced GPSIs and can see patients with a range of gastroenterology problems. Exclusions do apply - see link for details.
