ive just collected the paperwork for my first gastroenterology referral. I tried to book appointment but got the message that there was nothing available for me.
I have two questions:
1. What exactly 'Lower GI-Medical Gastroenterology stands for?
2. How do the referrals work? Will I get a kind of general appointment first or is it possible to get the colonoscopy or whatever they intend to do on the first go?
Thank you in advance. Any help would be highly appreciated.
