ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study that explores impact of endoscopy services redesign in Newcastle upon Tyne hospitals NHS trust. The process of redesign and standardization of Newcastle Endoscopy Services, which performs 14,500 endoscopies per year, led people to submit a successful bid to become a pilot site for the National Endoscopy Program in September 2002. Partial booking effectively reduces DNA rates but to be sustainable requires adequate funding. Two compulsory measures involved monitoring percentage booked cases and DNA rates.
