Consultations

  • Our general consultation waiting time is between 4-8 weeks dependent on urgency.
  • Urgent cases can be completed over the phone if required.
  • Our team will contact the patient once your referral has been received and triaged accordingly.

Privately insured patients

  • We are No-Gap providers for all privately insured patients (this also includes anaesthetic service).
  • The only cost to the patient is the excess that they have on their policy.
  • Waiting periods and finance checks are performed by relevant hospitals prior to procures being completed.

Non-insured patients 

  • The overall cost for having Gastroscopy and/or Colonoscopy is between A$2,500-A$3,000, depending on which facility and complexity of the case.
  • Private hospitals will organise quotes for patients. Our rooms can provide a fee estimate if required.
  • There might also be anaesthetic, medications, equipments and/or pathology costs involved.

Referral triaging process
