Changes to the Gastroenterology Pathway – PHU Trust

Changes to the Gastroenterology Pathway – PHU Trust

After a short period of trialling, all referrals to Gastro via Referral Assessment Service, the department has taken the decision to change back to Advice and Guidance for routine gastro appointments.

The department will continue to book patients into upper and lower GI clinics without sending back to GP’s – which was the benefit of the RAS – but the advice and guidance feature which was lost with the change to RAS will now be made available to GPs again.  The 2ww/IDA pathway will remain a referral assessment service.

Both services can be found on eRS as follows:

  • Medical Gastroenterology Advice and Guidance-PHU-RHU                                                     
  • 2WW Medical Gastroenterology RAS (Upper GI and IDA Proforma)-PHU-RHU       

This change will come in place on Monday 10th January 2022
