What is Direct Access Endoscopy?
Direct Access Endoscopy (DAE), also known as ‘Open-Access Endoscopy’ or ‘Straight to Test’, allows adult patients, who meet the criteria, to be referred for an endoscopic procedure without the need for an initial consultation with a gastroenterologist.
The patient may also have had a previous endoscopy test and require a repeat or follow-up surveillance procedure. These patients may wish to proceed straight to the endoscopy test without another consultation visit.
Please note: only healthcare professionals should complete this form. If you're a patient needing a referral for a private upper GI endoscopy, please ask your GP to complete this form.
