Unit philosophy

Southern Colorectal was established with the aim of providing specialist care in both the surgical management and long term follow-up of diseases of the colon and rectum. The group offers access to both public and private hospital facilities across a number of campuses.

Correspondence regarding consultations, operations or pathology results are relayed electronically, in most instances, to your GP and other doctors involved in your care within  24 hours. This allows all your healthcare providers to have up-to-date information and leads to a better coordinated approach to your ongoing care.

Our Surgeons participate in regular multi-disciplinary team (MDT) meetings which allow Consultant-led discussion of management for patients with cancer including surgical, chemotherapy and radiotherapy options resulting in the best possible tailored care for our patients.
