Effective teamworking in gastroenterology2011 The majority of healthcare provision within the NHS is delivered by teams, but most attempts at improving team functioning are limited to promoting working relationships within the team. This contrasts with other high risk industries, where formalised team training is recognised to be of paramount importance in reducing error. Some medical specialities have adapted such training methodologies with the aim of improving productivity and clinical outcomes. There are many teams within gastroenterology that could benefit from such attention. Formal analysis of team objectives and identification of essential task sequences can allow redesign of team organisation and enable structured training to strengthen team cohesion, enhance critical team skills and improve clinical outcomes. The challenge is to change teams of experts into expert teams.

Out of hours gastroenterology: A position paper2007 A survey of endoscopy units by the BSG in 2003 revealed that less than 50% of hospitals have twenty four hour/seven days/week access for patients requiring diagnostic/interventional endoscopy for GI bleeding. A more recent comprehensive survey of 161 endoscopy units showed a further small decline in the availability of out of hours cover. The introduction of the new consultant contract and the increasing numbers of acute medical admissions have led to consultant gastroenterologists being expected to provide an out of hours(OOH) GI bleeding service whilst their ward-based responsibilities inexorably rise. Financial pressures have also led to a reduction in the numbers of units having specialist endoscopy nurses working out of hours.
