Dr Colin Noble
MBChB, MRCP, MD
Since my appointment at the Western General Hospital, I have developed a broad practice across gastroenterology. In the clinic I see patients with weight loss, difficulty swallowing, reflux, abdominal pain, change in bowel habit and rectal bleeding.
I specialise in the management of patients with chronic intestinal diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease along with functional bowel diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome. I have also developed a specific focus on endoscopy and the removal of polyps at colonoscopy. In conjunction with my colleagues at Edinburgh Gastroenterology I aim to deliver high level care to patients with gastrointestinal problems.
I work in Spire Shawfair Park's endoscopy suite which holds JAG accreditation.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Colin Noble at Spire include:
Spire Edinburgh Hospitals Murrayfield and Shawfair Park is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.

I graduated from Edinburgh University and completed my gastroenterology training in Edinburgh, including a postgraduate degree based in Edinburgh and San Francisco. I have been a consultant gastroenterologist at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh since 2011. I am kept busy by my two children and enjoy golfing and swimming in my spare time.
