"Why a pre-appointment for urgent colonoscopy?"

My parter was referred urgently for a colonoscopy by her GP.
An appointment was sent promptly which we presumed was for the procedure and we were happy that she was being seen so quickly. However this turns out to be a pre-appointment before any procedure takes place.
It seems to me a waste of time and resources when all she needs is the procedure to diagnose the condition quickly.
