The Colorectal service at Vale Healthcare is becoming well known as a ‘one-stop’ provision, with specialist assessment and diagnosis often conducted during one single visit to our Cardiff Bay Clinic. This visit can take up to 2 hours, and involve some colorectal investigations such as Proctoscopy/ Rigid Sigmoidoscopy performed by Wales’ leading consultants, and Immediate Flexible Sigmoidoscopy for patients with high risk symptoms. 
This service is primarily run from our Cardiff Bay Clinic, where access to a specialist endoscopy theatre and equipment can usually mean assessment and diagnosis within one visit to see a colorectal consultant. Any colorectal surgery would then be performed by our colorectal specialists at either at The Vale Hospital, Hensol, near Cardiff or at the Cardiff Bay Clinic.
