£200,000 investment in state-of-the-art endoscopy equipment for Spire Leeds Hospital


Spire Leeds upgrades to cutting edge HD+ range from PENTAX Medical

Spire Leeds Hospital has invested almost £200,000 in state-of-the-art endoscopy equipment from PENTAX Medical.

The extraordinarily high-resolution images that the new equipment provides will help enhance the hospital’s detection of diseases, such as cancer, and enable earlier treatment which can improve patient outcomes.

The hospital has completely re-equipped its endoscopy department with the most-advanced flexible endoscopes on the market: these are flexible cameras that are inserted into the stomach, digestive tract and bladder to help detect and diagnose cancer.

This investment in PENTAX Medical’s HD+ endoscopes by Spire Leeds Hospital will ensure that its patients are provided with the best possible care.

Sister Jill Walker, head of the minor procedures and endoscopy unit at Spire Leeds Hospital, said: “We have had many happy consultants complimenting the equipment because of the exceptional images it produces and the features that are available. It is very easy to use and the image quality is excellent. The wireless technology was amazing for me and I feel really lucky to have such up-to-date cutting edge technology available for our patients here at Spire Leeds.”

We are pleased to continue supporting Spire Leeds clinicians to deliver the best possible endoscopy service to their patients.”
