Before your procedure
Before your procedure you will recieve a letter in the post from the endoscopy department. Sometimes, if you are having an emergency appointment or we have managed to get you a spot in a cancelled appointment, you may not recieve a letter in time.
If you do not recieve a letter from the endoscopy department at least 3 days before your procedure, please call us on 01752 438407.
You may have to prepare for your procedure by changing your diet, taking medicine or changing certain medicines. Information about the types of medicines we may need you to stop or change will be on your letter.
We will let you know if you need to stop or change your medication. Please do not stop or change your medication unless your GP or a member of staff from the endoscopy department asks you to.
