Colonoscopy and gastroscopy requests

From 20th January 2017 all colonoscopy and gastroscopy procedure requests to metropolitan public hospitals are to be submitted to the Central Referral Service. Referral forms are available here.

Referral guidelines have also been developed to assist in identifying patients with strong clinical indications for colonoscopy/gastroscopy and to define the access criteria for public gastrointestinal endoscopy services.

Referrals not meeting these criteria (as determined by the triaging clinician) will not be accepted.
