South Bank achieves JAG accreditation for second year

01 February 2018

Our Endoscopy Suite has for a second year running achieved JAG accreditation, a formal recognition where an endoscopy service has demonstrated its competence to deliver against strict criteria of high-quality, safe and appropriate endoscopy services.

The Endoscopy Suite is the only one of its kind in the area with JAG and continues to maintain its high standards by providing staff with relevant training and delivering short waiting times for patients and ongoing monitoring of service delivery.

The Endoscopy team is led by Karen Jefferies who oversees eight nurses and two admin staff. The team work alongside JAG Clinical Lead, Consultant General Surgeon Mr Stephen Lake, who specialises in colorectal surgery and endoscopy. There is also a nursing role specifically for JAG, ensuring all audits are completed and actioned. This role has been continually delivered by Nurse Cheryl Pearsall.
