Is your tummy trying to tell you something?

If you’re having problems with your stomach, digestion or going to the toilet, we can help find out what’s wrong.

Your doctor or consultant can refer you for our gastrointestinal tests, and some tests can even be sent out to you. Our service is trusted, fast and accurate – and that’s a big relief, because getting some answers is the first step to unlocking a solution.
