Information and guidance - COVID-19 May 2022 update

JAG, in collaboration with stakeholders representating BSG, ACPGBI and AUGIS, have issued guidance for endoscopy services regularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have seen the emergence of highly transmissible variants and the the roll out of vaccination that has reduced mortality and hospital admission significantly. 68% of the UK population aged 12+ have had three doses, 87% 2 doses and 93%, one dose of the vaccination. While there remains a significant risk from COVID-19 infection in someone undergoing GI endoscopy, it is appropriate to modify existing protocols considering the recent changes, whilst also maintaining standards to prevent cross infection.

We are releasing updated guidance based on this research which you can access on our site. Please follow this link to our most recent guidance.
