Community Clinics

At Prime Endoscopy Bristol we believe in bringing care closer to home to provide our patients with a complete service, with fast access to care.  Our Community Gastroenterology Clinics provide timely and empathetic care, combined with the convenience of a community based easily accessible setting.

When the cause of a patient’s symptoms is unclear your GP will welcome a second opinion from a specialist clinician. Our community gastroenterology clinics can provide comprehensive evaluation and management for a wide variety of gastrointestinal conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, heartburn, haemorrhoids, abdominal pain and discomfort, bleeding in the digestive tract, constipation and diarrhea, polyps or ulcers.

Our specialist clinicians are highly skilled in managing chronic gastrointestinal conditions and will spend time with you discussing your problems and will look at The type of symptoms you have and for how long, anything relieve or worsen the symptoms, any previous tests or treatment you may have had for these symptoms, any allergies you have and may take details of your social history.

Once you have answered all the questions a management plan and if necessary further investigations can then be formulated.  Your GP will be informed of the outcome.

Some conditions can be helped by a more healthy diet e.g. constipation and haemorrhoids can be caused by a lack of fibre in the diet, or a disruption of the regular routine or diet.
