Colonoscopy and sigmoidoscopy



In his current practice, Mr Williams manages all general surgical and colorectal patients.  This usually starts with a consultation in the out-patient clinic.  Subsequent investigations may be by endoscopy or X-rays.  

Mr Williams is a fully trained endoscopist having performed many of the lists that were required in the pilot phases of what is now the national bowel cancer screening program.  

Colonoscopy for screening requires a greater level of skill and competence.  This was formally validated after a one-to-one masterclass at St Marks hospital in 2004.  

He has continued to develop his endoscopic expertise and was recently (2010) revalidated by undertaking a further advanced course overseen by the Joint Advisory Group on Endoscopy
