Diagnostic Unit

The refurbished and modernised diagnostic unit was officially opened by David Jensen, Chairman of the Croydon Colorectal Cancer Charity on Friday, 23 October 2009.

The refurbishment was made possible with thanks to a generous donation of £1.4 million by Croydon Colorectal Cancer Charity and legacy money.

The diagnostic unit now has:  

  • A new reception area which offers patients, friends and family a comfortable and relaxing area to wait;
  • Four new consultation rooms that provide extra privacy and dignity for patients
  • Two new gender segregated areas for patients who have changed into their gowns and are waiting for their procedure;
  • A new recovery area;
  • A comfortable and well equipped area for patients waiting to go home;
  • The latest endoscopy equipment.

The unit sees approximately 11, 000 patients a year who need tests, such as endoscopy, for a wide range of conditions.
