These are guidelines to assist Victorian health services in ensuring that colonoscopy patients are prioritised in a similar way irrespective of the specialist or health service to which they are referred.

The department, working closely with clinicians, the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and health services has developed these consensus guidelines and referral information. They outline the optimal categories for prioritising colonoscopy patients in Victoria and provide key information required from referring clinicians.
