JAG has used its unique position to gather information about endoscopy services’ workload, infrastructure and workforce.
The purpose of the census is to gather information at a single point in time, resulting in the high-quality data about the capacity to deliver GI endoscopy in the UK.
It was this data collection which allowed us to write Endoscopy in 2017: a national survey of practice in the UK, highlighting the increased pressures currently being felt in GI endoscopy services. You can see other outputs from previous data from 2016 and from 2017.
These documents give an insight into GI endoscopy practice in the whole of the UK, based on data provided by the endoscopy services themselves.
