URGENT TWO-WEEK GP REFERRALS

Why have I been referred on the two week GP referral pathway?

 

Your General Practitioner will refer a patient to hospital to be seen within two weeks if they have symptoms that could possibly indicate cancer. The majority of patients referred in this way do not have cancer but it is important to see a specialist as soon as possible to either confirm or rule out a cancer diagnosis. Early diagnosis may mean more effective treatment and better outcomes.

What do I need to do?

 

Your GP will refer you within 24 hours of your appointment.

A member of our administrative team will contact you during this time to arrange an appointment at a time that is convenient for you and at a hospital of your choice. If our administrative team are unable to contact you, an appointment will still be made and you will have the option later to change this if you are unable to keep the appointment.

  • It is best to try and co-operate with appointments offered and keep the appointment.
  • Let the hospital know immediately if you are not able to attend your appointment.
  • Ensure the practice has your correct contact details.
  • If you are not offered an appointment within two weeks of the hospital receiving your referral, then please contact your GP immediately.

What happens after the appointment?

 

After one week, the practice will check your records to make sure that you have been seen by a consultant at the hospital.

The hospital consultant will advise you of the outcome of your consultation and any action you need to take.   The hospital will also keep your GP informed.

If you are given a cancer diagnosis, your GP will contact you to ensure the appropriate care and plans are put in place for you.

The majority of patients seen under the two week referral system do not have cancer but early diagnosis of a disease may mean more effective treatment and better outcomes.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding a referral,

please speak with a member of the Clinical Team
