Waiting lists

Endoscopy departments continue to have under capacity, despite growing demand.

Weekday capacity

Bowel cancer screening and interventional procedures taking up weekday capacity at the expense of the diagnostic 2 week wait patient journey.

Workforce constraints

Endemic workforce gaps across clinical and admin/IT teams.

List productivity

Fragmented administration, high DNA rates, dropped lists and poor bowel preparation, resulting in poor list productivity.

Dr John Devlin explains why we are different from other providers

We have a London teaching hospital leadership and ethos but with handpicked consultants from the regions
who are clinical leads based in their own hospitals. Many are involved in tertiary care bowel
screening or complex endoscopy. Our group of endoscopists are highly skilled specialists
covering upper and lower GI pathology.


Focused, dedicated, stable teams delivering on average 12-14 points per list with enhanced clinical outcomes.

Our end-to-end admin and clinical solution increases productivity through refinement, enhanced bowel prep and reduced DNAs.

High quality

98% of patients of patients rated their endoscopy experience as excellent (90%) or very good (8%) overall (May 23).

Through enhancing quality metrics and productivity, DMC has a track record in achieving JAG accreditation for Trusts.

We are expanding our endoscopy service and are looking to recruit experienced Endoscopy Nurses,
Consultants and Nurse Endoscopists to join our team.

Clinical Effectiveness

Clinical effectiveness means ensuring that all aspects of service delivery are designed to provide the best outcomes for patients. This is achieved by ensuring that the right care is delivered to the right person at the right time they are in need and in the correct setting.


A patient’s information should always be up to date and correct on any systems used. It should also be confidential through correct storage and management of data.

Risk Management

Risk Management involves having robust systems in place to understand, monitor and minimise the risks to patients and staff and to learn from mistakes. When things go wrong in the delivery of care, our staff teams should feel safe admitting it and be able to learn and share what they have learnt, which embeds change in practice.

Patient & Public Involvement

Communication with patients and the public is essential to gain insight on the quality of care we deliver, and any possible problems that can result. Public involvement is equally as important to ensure that patient and public feedback is used to improve services into day-to-day practice for better patient outcomes.

Education & Training

This encompasses the provision of appropriate support to enable staff to be competent in doing their jobs and to develop their skills so that they are up to date. Professional development needs to continue through lifelong learning.

Staff Management

This ensures the organisation recruits highly skilled staff and aligns them with the correct job roles. Staff are supported in professional development and to gain and improve their skills.


The aim of the audit process is to ensure that clinical practice is continuously monitored and that deficiencies in relation to set standards of care are remedied. Research goes alongside audits to pioneer best practice improvements.
