Rectal Bleeding

Rectal Bleeding

Experiencing bleeding from the back passage when going to the toilet can be very worrying, particularly when experienced for the first time.

Rectal bleeding is common, and symptoms usually develop very quickly. Whilst most causes are not serious and can be treated, in some cases, rectal bleeding can be a symptom of a serious disease such as colorectal cancer. We have developed a new, all inclusive package to diagnose the cause of rectal bleeding.

Bupa Cromwell Hospital Rectal Bleeding Treatment Pathway
Bupa Cromwell Hospital Rectal Bleeding Treatment Pathway


Treatment is tailored to your own particular needs by your specialist, but may include the following:

  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy to investigate large bowel
  • Banding of haemmoroids if required

Why choose Bupa Cromwell Hospital for rectal bleeding treatment?

We have developed a new, all-inclusive package to diagnose the cause of rectal bleeding, led by our highly experienced, Joint Advisory Group on GI Endoscopy (JAG) accredited Team. JAG Accreditation is the formal recognition that an endoscopy service has demonstrated the competence to deliver against standards required by the endoscopy Global Rating Scale.
The GP or patient (if self-referring) rings our dedicated line and ask for the one stop rectal bleeding service. Once the appointment is booked the patient will have an initial Nurse-led pre-assessment over the phone, before being booked to come to the hospital for a Consultant assessment, endoscopy and treatment of haemorrhoids (if required). If a more serious condition is suspected, they will be offered prompt referral to a Bupa Cromwell Hospital specialist.

The consultation, endoscopy and treatment will all take place on the same day.


How much does the service cost?

  • The all-inclusive self funding package price is £1,650. If patients do not require all of the services included in the pathway, they will be refunded for these.
  • Patients with private medical insurance should be covered by their policy but would need to check this prior to booking.
