Endoscopy has always been an integral part of colorectal practice. The purpose of this subgroup is to ensure that the highest standards of practice are maintained going forward, training is maintained, and that new techniques can be supported appropriately. The Colonoscopy subcommittee mirrors IBD, peritoneal malignancy and proctology subgroups that similarly report through MCC.
There are currently two areas that the committee is focusing on:
- Participation in a review of colonoscopy follow-up guidelines in conjunction with the British Society of Gastroenterology.
- Consideration of issues of training in colonoscopy.
