Open Access Procedures

Open Access allows referring doctors to request a colonoscopy without the need for an initial specialist consultation.

To qualify for our Open Access Colonoscopy service, you should:

  • Have a positive FOBT, minor rectal bleeding or a family history of colon cancer
  • Be less than 75 years old 
  • Be fit and healthy 
  • Not be taking any anticoagulant medication 
  • Have no history of heart disease, diabetes, epilepsy, kidney or liver disease, or serious lung disease 
  • Have a BMI of less than 35

Once we receive a referral from your GP you will be contacted by our staff to confirm your suitability.
