Change in Bowel Habit

Your GP will have referred you to GI Choice for investigation of your change in bowel habit. You will be offered an appointment the same week to see one of the team specializing in this type of problem (Mike Stroud, John Knight, Mark Wright, Trevor Smith).

During your appointment we will take a full history, undertake a thorough examination and offer a preliminary opinion. The next step will usually be to obtain some further blood tests and then to arrange investigations such as colonoscopy and where appropriate a gastroscopy and or a scan performed by one of our radiology team (Drs Hacking, Stedman) to look for the cause of your symptoms. Where convenient for you we can usually arrange this within a few days of your consultation.

After the procedures we will discuss with you the diagnosis and arrange for further investigations if appropriate and recommend a management/ treatment plan.
