What to expect
The practice does not offer an “open-access” endoscopic service except in rare circumstances, and patients will be seen in consultation beforehand in the rooms. If an endoscopic procedure is to be subsequently performed, the date will be set after the consultation. If there is a need for a bowel preparation, the practice nurse will see you to explain what is necessary before you leave the suite.
What to bring
- Referral letter: Patients need to bring a written referral from their general practitioner (usually valid for one year) or specialist (usually valid for three months)
- Medicare card
- Health fund details
- Reports and copies of any pathology results (if available).

The practice charges the fees as set out by the Australian Medical Association, for in-room consultation and subsequent procedures. There is likely to be a gap payment after consultation and procedures. If you have any financial issues related to the scale of fees, please discuss these concerns with the doctors or administrative staff before, not after, the service has been provided. Any additional fees such as anaesthetic fees and pathology fees for biopsies for example, are not the responsibility of Northern Suburbs Gastroenterology. If endoscopic procedures are to be performed at the Sydney Adventist Hospital, the hospital will charge bed fees and theatre fees separately.
