The Medic

Dr Patrick Ward-Booth  MB.BS, MSc

A pioneer within endoscopy services.  Patrick introduced the routine use of trans-nasal endoscopy into the UK.

Patrick was a regional lead for a national endoscopy quality improvement programme, which presaged the introduction of the national bowel cancer colonoscopy screening programme.

He started a community based endoscopy business providing service to the NHS. He subsequently sold out this service to InHealth when delivering 10,000 procedures across England.

It was his role of endoscopy in health care delivery in the UK and worldwide that highlighted to him the significant  improvements that would come from a single use endoscope.
