Endoscopy patient journey
Have you received an appointment for an endoscopy with us but have questions about the next steps? Please watch the video below or read the FAQ questions towards the bottom of this page.
Can I change my appointment?
You have been booked into an appropriate appointment in line with the urgency of your referral. It is important that you try to be available for the first booked appointment we give you.
How do I prepare for my Endoscopy?
You will have received an appointment letter from us, which contains important information regarding preparing for your procedure, as well as information about the procedure itself so that you know what to expect before you arrive.
Why do I need a COVID-19 swab test before my appointment?
Why am I being seen at LivingCare?
LivingCare work with the NHS to reduce waiting lists and add capacity across Yorkshire. We work with all local GP surgerys to accept referrals direct, as well as with local hospitals.
Can I bring someone with me to my appointment?
If you require sedation for your appointment, you must not drive yourself home or travel home on your own, and we request that you arrange someone to travel home with you, this can be either by driving you or by taxi.
Can I still attend my appointment if in a local lockdown?
Yes, medical appointments are not affected by local lockdown rules, and it's important that you attend your appointment at the date/time stated in your letter/text.
