Direct Access Referral System
Our endosQ Direct Access Referral System (DARS) allows your patients to be scheduled for routine gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures without prior consultation with the Gastroenterologist. They will be seen by a nurse or one of our doctors trained in the assessment of patients for direct access procedures. If the nurse or doctor has any concerns, they will speak with the Gastroenterologist directly.
Patients must have few or no co-morbidities to access this service and is ideally suited to those who are otherwise well and whose general practitioners are asking very specific questions – e.g. referring a patient for a colonoscopy on the basis of a Positive Fecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT) or for example a surveillance procedure with a history of known colonic polyp.
Please liaise directly with us if you require referral assistance or additional information to help with your referral.
There are four easy ways to send through your Direct Access Referrals
1) Electronic Referral Template – our preferred method
2) Electronic Fillable PDF
3) Hard copy / paper referral pad
4) Online form
