Endoscopy action plan

The purpose of the Endoscopy Action Plan is to improve the health of Queenslanders by delivering sustainable, equitable access to high quality gastrointestinal endoscopy services.

Demand for gastrointestinal endoscopy is increasing as a result of the expanding national bowel cancer screening program and a growing, ageing population. More services are required to meet the demand and ensure people are seen within clinically recommended time frames.

As a result of implementing these initiatives, the number of people waiting longer than clinically recommended for an endoscopy will be significantly reduced and there will be improved access to services across the state.
