Gastroenterology

  • As we are currently dealing with the COVID 19 crisis, we will not be able to offer a Direct to test 2WW Upper Endoscopy service as normal. Patients referred via this service will need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. We need to triage referrals and reserve endoscopic procedures for those judged to be of the highest priority.To help this decision making please can you ensure enough clinical details about symptoms and comorbidities are submitted with the referral. Mandatory information that must be submitted with referral:

    Detailed symptoms and clinical examination

    Blood tests (full blood count, U&E liver and bone profile) and imaging results

    Clinical diagnosis

    Comorbidities, frailty/ASA score

  • From 22nd April 2020 Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust will be offering an Advice and Guidance service on e-Referrals for Gastroenterology queries.The Advice & Guidance service is to be used to obtain a diagnosis or management advice from a Consultant Gastroenterologist.GPs will be able to request consultant advice on Gastroenterology queries for potential referrals into secondary care.
