Yesterday saw the official opening of the Endoscopy Unit at York Hospital. Following introductions from Simon Morritt (Chief Executive) the unit was opened by Mike Procter, former Chief Executive at the Hospital.
The new flagship unit, built above the hospital’s existing physiotherapy department, has been designed to increase capacity to meet growing demand, improve the efficiency of patient flow and enhance the patient experience. The new unit will deliver improvements to diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy waiting times and increase the range of procedures offered, meaning fewer patients will have to travel to Leeds or Hull.
Mike said: “I’m delighted to return to the Trust to officially open the new endoscopy and GI physiology unit.
