BioDr Canvan is a dedicated senior gastroenterologist based at the Bronglais (Aberystwyth) Hospital in West Wales. He also sits on the board of the Hywell Dda NHS Trust which controls all The West Wales Hospitals. Dr Canavan moved with his young family from a top London hospital, seeking the peace and quiet of the countryside but has contributed to a number of innovative programs at Bronglais.

Incredibly patient oriented, takes a holistic view of gastroenterology and is open to patient input on treatment. He maintains close relationships with all his patients, scheduling regular appointments for those with IBD especially. Seeks new testing regularly and will see any of his regular patients for an appointment after hours if the patient thinks it necessary. He is accessible to his patients by phone and email at all times. His staff also enjoy working with him as part of the larger gastroenterology team at Bronglais hospital and his position in the local NHS Trust has ensured the ongoing needs of this relatively small but excellent centre of surgery and diagnosis. New buildings and enlarged wards have made it one of the most comfortable patient experiences with good menu choices, top levels of cleanliness although parking remains a problem. Most tests are available on site although Dr Canavan is quick off the mark if a test is needed at another location which he will arrange. (the new Gel MRI at Haverfordwest/capsule endoscopy at Royal Gwent etc.). He has arranged Fecalpro testing on site and also hopes to bring the capsule endoscopy to Bronglais in the future.

5 / 5 Bedside Manner
