The following figures were provided:

Gastroscopy/OGD; Noble's 999, Ramsey 206, Total 1205

Colonoscopy; Noble's 987, Ramsey 268, Total 1255

Flexi Sigmoidoscopy; Noble's 256, Ramsey 49, Total 305

Cystoscopy; Noble's 455, Ramsey 69, Total 524

Thus the grand total of procedures at Noble's was 2697 compared to 592 at Ramsey.

In addition to the above, there were 28 endoscopic examination of urethra procedures carried out (not specified in the original Keys’ question), bringing the total number of procedures undertaken during 2016/17 to 3317.
