Direct Access Endoscopy Services
Endoscopy services are available speedily with a GP referral to Blackrock Clinic. To many patients the services are available by “direct access” which means that they bypass the requirement to see a consultant in the first instance. This saves time, and alleviates the stress of potential waiting lists.
Located within our purpose built Day Unit, appointments are offered after receipt and protocol of the referral document.
The following services are available via this method:
Gastroscopy (also known as OGD)
An OGD test allows the doctor to look at the lining of the oesophagus, the stomach and the first part of the intestine.
- Gastroscopy: Patient Information Booklet – Gastroscopy
A colonoscopy is a visual examination of the lining of your bowel. It is performed by passing a small flexible tube through the rectum into the colon.
