When you arrive in the Endoscopy Unit, you will be asked to book in for your examination at the CT/MRI reception. You will then be asked to be seated in the waiting area. Soon after you arrive, you will be seen by the admitting nurse, who will take you to one of our admission rooms and check your identity and go through your Integrated Care Pathway questionnaire with you. This will ensure that the necessary safety checks are carried out prior to your procedure. The admitting nurse will check your blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen levels. If you are diabetic, your blood glucose level.
The admitting nurse will explain the risks and benefits of the procedure. They will be able to answer any concerns you have and go through your consent form with you. Taking of consent is delegated to registered nurses In Endoscopy.
