Paediatric Gastroenterology


What we do

The paediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition department at University Hospitals of Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW) is the specialist tertiary centre for children and young adults with gastrointestinal, liver and nutrition problems for Bristol and the South West of England. 

These include complex gastrointestinal (GI), liver and nutritional conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), coeliac disease, chronic diarrhoea, complex failure to thrive, gut failure requiring intravenous feeding, pancreatic and liver disease.

The department provides a full range of specialised diagnostic tests to assess and manage complex conditions including therapeutic and diagnostic endoscopy.

We are recognised by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health as a specialist training centre for doctors in paediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition.

Your or your child's care is provided by a multidisciplinary team (MDT) of professionals with different expertise, skills and knowledge working closely.
