Endoscopy Programme

The endoscopy programme in NHS Lothian aims - To provide timely and patient centred access to diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy procedures for patients treated within NHS Lothian.
We have been working on the quality planning stage to understand the high level process that are involved in the endoscopy service and an high level process map has been agreed with the service.  There has also been work to understand the appointment allocation process and how the bowel screening service interacts with endoscopy as a whole.
