About our service

An experienced team of surgeons, gastroenterologists, anaesthetists and nurses ensure patients receive the highest quality care. GPs have the option of referring patients directly to the Cabrini Brighton Endoscopy Centre via the OPEN ACCESS SERVICE.

The Open Access Endoscopy Centre offers:

  • convenience (Dr/Patient)
  • a streamlined booking and preadmission process with the choice of up to 10 sessions per week (Mon–Fri) Cost-effectiveness

Currently insured patients can expect to experience an all-inclusive gap-free service for the procedure, anesthetic services, pathology and medical imaging on the day (aside from any excesses and co-payments associated with their health insurance cover)

The service resides inside a comprehensive hospital environment, which offers a range of associated services. The majority of any post-procedural follow-up (if required) can be managed at the one site. We currently have up to 10 gastroenterologists/gastrointestinal surgeons, covering a wide range of sub-specialties, participating in the open-access model of care.

Please note that some exclusions apply:

  • Patients need to be between 18 and 74 years of age and in good health
  • Patients with complex medical needs are not appropriate referrals, including, but not limited to: extensive cardiac disease or recent cardiac surgery, breathing difficulties (COPD), diabetics that require insulin, patients taking the following blood thinning medications - Warfarin, Clopidogrel/Plavix, Xarelto and Eliquis and patients with a cognitive impairment or dementia.
