The GRS and JAG standards do not state that a service must have a scope or image guide to aid colonoscopy, and JAG does not endorse any particular model or manufacturer. Services must ensure they have the appropriate equipment to provide a high quality and safe service to their patients, and that they are able to provide high quality training to their trainees.
