Dr Matthew Hall

After gastroscopy or colonoscopy

You won’t be able to drive for 24hours following the anaesthetic and therefore will need to make arrangement for friend or family to pick you up and it is requested that you be with someone for those 24hours in case of unexpected events following the procedure. Although adverse events are rare, early recognition is important. Dr Hall will discuss the results of the test with you and family following the procedure. A written report is given and any later available results are sent via email or post.
