The Mobile Endoscopy Unit at Fairfield General Hospital

We are proud to share a recent article in The Bury Times, featuring our Mobile Endoscopy Unit partnership at Fairfield General Hospital. With Vanguard Healthcare, we are able to safely provide Endoscopy procedures via the innovative mobile unit, and it has been a great success so far.

The Unit

The twin-roomed unit will operate for six months initially from a temporary modular building set up on the Fairfield General Hospital site. The unit has been specially commissioned by Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership to support the delivery of endoscopy services following the pandemic disruption. The unit will prioritise category one patients, which are the most urgent, waiting for an endoscopy.

Fairfield General Hospital

Dr Roger Prudham, Consultant Gastroenterologist and a Deputy Medical Director at the Northern Care Alliance, which operates Fairfield General Hospital through its Bury Care Organisation, said: “I am overjoyed to see the first patients being treated at the new endoscopy unit. It has been a difficult year to say the least and to know that we can now start to treat some of those patients who have waited so patiently for their care is a very special moment.”
