Sigmoidoscopy Clinic

Sigmoidoscopy Clinic


A sigmoidoscopy is an examination of the lower part of the bowel (the sigmoid colon) and Dr Robert Denney is trained to perform this procedure.  Working as a GP with Special Interest (GPwSI) for the Primary Care Trust (PCT) he cab to see patients who are referred by GPs across Mid Sussex. 


After examination, he is able to recommend ongoing management or Dr Robert Denneyalternatively, he organises onward referral to secondary care via the fast track pathway, should his findings warrant this.


Dr Denney holds two clinics a month at The Avenue Surgery on Thursday afternoons and patients are normally seen within a couple of weeks of referral. 


All patients are offered the services of a chaperone and all female patients are chaperoned as a matter of course. 


Many local GPs view this as a cost effective means of establishing a swift and accurate diagnoses for many lower bowel symptoms and patients appreciate that they do not need to travel to hospital to access this service.
