This page covers urgent referrals to see a specialist on the two-week pathway. Referrals can be made for the following suspected cancers:
- brain & CNS
- head and neck
- lower GI
- lung and pleura
- upper GI
For information about cancer referrals, please visit the Pan-London referral guide.
It is important for practices to have a robust safety netting system. For information about the EMIS Macmillian safety netting template, see the EMIS guide.
Urgent referrals for suspected cancer should be sent using the Pan-London suspected cancer referral forms. Please check that you are using the correct version of the form on your EMIS system.
Send by e-Referral, not fax or email. Book directly with the preferred hospital (not via CCAS).
