About Dr Adam Haycock

Dr Adam Haycock is a consultant gastroenterologist and Partner at OneWelbeck, specialising in colonoscopy, bowel cancer screening and therapeutic endoscopy. He is also an honorary senior lecturer at Imperial College London, and endoscopy training lead for London North West University Healthcare NHS Trust.

His research interest is in improving the safety and quality of endoscopy and endoscopic training. His interest in cutting-edge technology and enhanced safety measures has enabled development of new tools in endoscopy, including the use of virtual reality simulation in colonoscopy and endoscopy-specific safety checklists.

Dr Adam Haycock partnered with OneWelbeck in 2018 to collaboratively develop the OneWelbeck Digestive Health Centre. He has used his extensive experience in endoscopy accreditation to inform operational policies, unit design and selection of our quality reporting systems.

“I worked on ensuring that the design and operational procedures not just meet, but exceed the national JAG quality standards – the gold standard in endoscopy care.”

He completed a masters teaching degree in 2011, leading to accreditation with the Higher Education Academy, and in 2009-2010 was the Chair of the National Trainees Committee in Gastroenterology. As training lead for the Wolfson Unit for Endoscopy, (a National Training Centre and the only OMED World Centre of Excellence in the UK), he trains over 150 endoscopists each year. He is on the steering committee for the National Non-Medical Endoscopy Accelerated Training Programme, and was previously the British Society for Gastroenterology e-learning lead.

After graduation, he became a specialist registrar in the north west Thames region. He completed an MD at St Mark’s Hospital in 2010 on ‘Quality Assurance of Training in Diagnostic and Therapeutic Gastrointestinal Endoscopy’. This included investigating and developing novel techniques for assessing and evaluating training processes.

He was appointed to the consultant team at St Mark’s Hospital in 2011, and now leads the national endoscopy training centre at St Mark’s Hospital. Here, he has been tasked with a remit to improve the quality and provision of endoscopic training.
