Mobile Endoscopy

InHealth is the only provider in the UK to provide fully staffed, equipped, CQC registered endoscopy mobile units, a number of which are JAG accredited

A UK first in Endoscopy

We are thrilled to introduce the UK’s first all-inclusive, expandable, mobile endoscopy suite into the InHealth fleet, as part of a unique collaboration with Expandable Healthcare.

The 18-metre long facility boasts hydraulic capability, including a full length slide-out, allowing the unit to be lowered into position without the need for a crane to deliver all the benefits of a traditional mobile unit at ground level.

The self-contained facility includes a dedicated reception area, state-of-the-art procedure room, recovery rooms and decontamination and water treatment rooms.

Patients can access endoscopy services outside of hospital settings, in fantastic facilities that use the latest technology, which are designed around providing a positive and seamless patient experience.

Mobile Endoscopy FAQ

Why an InHealth mobile unit?

A mobile endoscopy unit provides additional endoscopy capacity to support waiting lists. It is also perfect for supporting hospitals during periods of unit refurbishments or equipment upgrades

How does an InHealth mobile endoscopy room differ from a normal endoscopy room?

The mobile unit is constructed to the same Hospital Building Notes and Hospital Technical Memoranda as a normal endoscopy suite would be. The units are equipped with sophisticated systems to ensure the correct number of air changes and decontamination of endoscopes. The units are also enabled with 4G connectivity and/or fibre access to existing IT networks meaning that clinical reports can be produced and uploaded on-site to existing patient administration systems.

How does it compare to insourcing staff?

We’re here to manage the pathway from “end to end”. Depending on what you need, we can:

  • provide booking services from our 150-strong booking centre
  • provide high-quality endoscopic equipment
  • provide the endoscopists and nursing teams to perform the procedures
  • provide our own pathology service and follow up on any histology reporting
Service quality

We’re serious about the quality of the service we deliver.

You can rest assured that our mobile endoscopy services are registered with and inspected by the Care Quality Commission.

In addition to that, from day one of service delivery, our services will work to JAG standards and collate the necessary data in order to obtain JAG accreditation. Find out more about JAG accredited services here.

As part of our service offering, we’ll provide you with a monthly quality pack which will enable you to keep tabs on a whole range of indicators such as Friends and Family Test results, DNAs, Cancellations and Endoscopist KPIs.

Mobile decontamination

Along with the mobile endoscopy units, we’re able to provide a fully compliant mobile decontamination facility.

Our decontamination solutions can be integrated within the mobile endoscopy unit or standalone. The decontamination units are fully functioning and meet the stringent quality standards required for reprocessing endoscopes.
