Hi every one can anyone tell me who decides if your colonoscopy is urgent referral or routine? I went to my gp around 10days ago as I had bleeding and stomache cramps she examined me and got bloods done and told me I would be referred on to the hospital. I then recived a letter from hospital with a fone NUMBER to fone for appointment for a colonoscopy when l foned the lady informed me I was noted down for an urgent colonoscopy and this would have only happened if they had seen something in the stool sample I had handed in so i was then given an appointment for 3weeks for the colonoscopy. After the call l foned reception at my gp surgery who told me my blood tests were clear and that the stool sample takes longer for the result to come back to the GP surgery. I'm now wondering is it my gp referral letter that would ask for urgent referral or is the lady who gave me the colonoscopy appointment correct she said I have worked here a long time and only time you get an urgent appointment is if they see something in your stool sample so I'm kinda worried now thanks in advance Jim.i live in scotland.
