Digestive Health City and Docklands Practice

You will be given continuity of care by a single experienced consultant, and you are guaranteed to receive consultant-delivered care and advice throughout the entire process.

You will be given the freedom to choose your date and timeslot (which includes evenings and weekends), from a choice of five different locations, to suit your busy schedule. There will never be any delays or cancellations from our side.

Digestive Health: City & Docklands is committed to providing an outstanding level of care, and we are confident in our ability to provide you with a service that is friendly, modern and prompt. Not only is Dr. Harris accountable to the NHS-led principles of clinical governance, Digestive Health has also developed further independent measures in order to evaluate patient satisfaction and respond to patient feedback.

This ensures that healthcare professionals’ performance is reviewed to ensure that they are providing and maintaining a high standard of care.

The endoscopy units at the Spire & Nuffield Hospitals in Tunbridge Wells, collect data on the number of upper GI endoscopies, flexible sigmoidoscopies and colonoscopies performed by Dr Harris. This data is discussed at local Endoscopy User Group meetings, compared with his peer group, BSG & JAG standards.

The endoscopy audit data is included in Dr Harris’ annual appraisal where the quality, safety and outcomes of the procedures are discussed with his Appraiser.

This involves measuring performance in line with certain standards (see Table) and assessing patients’ views of the service.
