Patients seeking a private gastroenterologist in London will be treated with state of the art facilities and treated in our modern Brampton House Outpatient Consulting Rooms.

Specialised gastrointestinal treatment

  • A purpose-built Endoscopy Suite adjacent to the consulting rooms, equipped with cutting-edge endoscopy equipment

The GI Unit’s integrated approach to patient care ensures a smooth and efficient referral pathway to allow ease of access and quick appointments with the most appropriate clinician for the specific gastrointestinal treatment.

The combined expertise of our gastroenterologists in London covers the whole range of upper and lower GI conditions, together with biliary diseases, through to a number of Specialist Clinics.


Patient story - Dr John Watson

Dr John Watson came in to our urgent care centre Casualty First with what he suspected to be a strangulated hernia. As well as suffering with this he also required a gastroscopy and was referred to one of our GI consultants Mr Romi Navaratnam. Dr Watson was seen the same-day by our consultants and praised the standard of patient rooms, the quality of the food provided and the knowledgeable nurses that were on-hand throughout his treatment.

If you have any questions relating to treatment options or pricing information then get in touch with us by filling out one of our contact boxes or giving us a call on 020 7078 3802.

Our Appointments Team have a dedicated and caring approach to finding you the earliest appointment possible with the best specialist.

 If you are self-paying you don’t need a referral from your GP. You can simply refer yourself and book an appointment.

If you have medical insurance (e.g. Bupa, Axa PPP, Aviva), you will need to contact your insurer to get authorisation for any treatment and, in most cases, you will require a referral letter from your GP.

If you do not have a GP, then we have an in-house private GP practice that you can use. Alternatively we can suggest the most appropriate course of action for you to take, given your location and individual circumstance.
