Eastbourne DGH Endoscopy Unit

The Endoscopy Unit at Eastbourne District General Hospital is a purpose built unit which opened in 2014.

The unit was built to ensure our environment was compliant with JAG (Joint Advisory Group) requirements. This means along with Conquest Hospital we will be able to apply for JAG accreditation affording us ‘centre of excellence’ status.
