Rapid assessment for FOBT positive patients: St George Hospital

25 January 2021

St George Hospital has a new service to improve the timeliness of colonoscopies for patients with a positive FOBT.  Using a telephone nurse-led clinic model, fast access will be given to coloscopy lists for patients in the public hospital.

The model allows the CNC as the first point of call for any concerns. The service is suitable for direct referrals from GPs with asymptomatic positive FOBT patients.
