The South Eastern Trust Nurse Endoscopy Team recently scooped an award from the Ulster Society of Gastroenterology for work carried out in developing  an inpatient Nurse Endoscopy Co-ordinator role.

The team embraced new ways of working during the COVID pandemic by developing a dedicated inpatient endoscopy service which is run by Nurse Endoscopists with clinician support, delivering a safe, rapid and sustainable service.  The service has improved outcomes for patients, expedited patient flow and provided educational opportunities for staff and trainees.
