Dr Bernard Stacey
Fellow Royal College of Physicians
My specialty is Gastroenterology and I see conditions relating to both the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract. Commonly the symptoms I see include indigestion, heartburn, iron deficiency anaemia, weight loss, abdominal pain, diarrhoea and rectal bleeding.
My expertise and training is in endoscopy including gastroscopy, endoscopic ultrasound and colonoscopy and I am the clinical lead consultant for endoscopy in Southampton.
I graduated from Bristol University, served in the Royal Army Medical Corps from 1990-97, and then completed my training within Wessex before being appointed to a substantive consultant post in Southampton in 2004. I consult both in the NHS and privately and see referrals from both GPs and consultant colleagues.
Spire Southampton Hospital 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 am married and have one beautiful daughter. Outside medicine, when the family allows (!), I am a keen squash player and keep-fit devotee. Despite this I still love cooking and swirling the odd glass of Burgundy and in more restful hours read copiously and also write - currently working on my third book.
I am an avid cricket follower and bowl slow left arm on occasional outings!
