Westmead Hospital

Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Department

The Westmead Hospital Endoscopy Department is a large, tertiary referral unit performing a wide range of basic and advanced endoscopy procedures.   

Rapid Access FOBT Clinic

One of the core services provided by the unit is high quality screening examinations for patients referred as part of the National Bowel Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP).

To improve timely access to this service, we have developed a rapid access clinic for patients with positive faecal occult blood tests. General practitioners can refer to this service for a rapid clinic assessment by a specialty nurse and subsequent colonoscopy.

To find out more or to refer your patient to the clinic, visit our Rapid Access FOBT Clinic page.
