Prior to undergoing a Colonoscopy procedure you will receive an appointment with one of our Registered Nurses. This appointment will take approximately 30 minutes, and is to assess your suitability to undergo procedure at one of our stand-alone facilities, as well as prescribe and provide education regarding your preparation kit.
WHAT WILL BE DISCUSSED AT THIS APPOINTMENT?
During this appointment the Nurse will provide a health history assessment, this includes;
Your current and past medical conditions
Your current medications
Other relevant information for prescribing your preparation
To assist in this process please ensure that you have correctly completed your paperwork, and have this information at hand during your Nurse appointment.
Time will also be provided for you to discuss any questions or concerns that you have regarding the procedure.
WHAT INFORMATION WILL I RECIEVE ABOUT MY COLONOSCOPY PREPARATION?
Once the Nurse has completed the health assessment, a suitable preparation will be prescribed. You will be provided with education on how to take your preparation, foods you should avoid during your preparation, and your fluid diet requirements. Depending on your current medications, you may also be provided with addition medical management instructions.
WHERE DO I NEED TO GO FOR THIS APPOINTMENT?
We offer both face-to-face appointments at our Loganholme & Sunnybank facilities, as well as telehealth consultation appointments. If you choose to have a telehealth consultation you will need to organise a time to attend the facility to collect your preparation.
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Please be aware, if you have not provided a current Doctors Referral, or your paperwork is not completed in time, your appointment may be delayed or rescheduled to ensure other patients are not delayed.
