Survey – Your views on the development of future colon capsule endoscopy services

colon capsule

Have you undergone an endoscopy or colonoscopy? The NHS want to hear your views and opinions on the use of colon capsules and computer learning to help investigate and diagnose bowel related problems.

About this opportunity:

As new services are developed and tested it’s important to have the views of patients and the public so services can be designed based on your feedback and observations and new technology can be successfully integrated into supporting and delivering medical care.

The NHS uses a variety of technologies to support Doctors and Nurses as they care for patients. One technology currently being considered is colon capsules.

A colon capsule (approximately the size of a large vitamin tablet) is swallowed with water by the patient. The capsule contains a miniature camera that takes thousands of photos as it passes through the patient’s digestive system. The photos are recorded on a wireless device. The capsule is entirely disposable. Once it has passed through the patient it is simply flushed away.

Researchers at the NHS want to hear your views and opinions on the use of colon capsules and computer learning to help investigate and diagnose bowel related problems.

Please contact ajey.sharma@nhs.net if you have any questions regarding this opportunity.
