The Endoscopy Unit is managed by the Senior Sister Sarah Bellwood. She is supported by Sister Jackie Smith and Sister Carole Dickinson, and Sister Rowena Bernardo. The team further consists of 12 Registered nurses and 5 Endoscopy Healthcare Assistants. The unit is overseen and supported by the Lead Nurse Jane Evans. As Endoscopy is a specialised area we also have regular bank staff working in the unit to cover additional lists, study and annual leave.
