Two Week Cancer Waits (Referrals)

We have received a number of letters from GPs who have expressed their concern about patients who are seen in hospital and cancer is suspected and are being sent back to the GP to re refer the patient under a 2 week wait with the excuse that the hospital is unable to undertake internal referrals for two week waits.

The LMC has raised this issue with the relevant local hospitals and CCGs as this is clearly unacceptable and results in a delay in the patient’s care and generated additional work.

Once again we are grateful for the help and support of the Wessex Cancer Network.

Helpful letter from the Chair from the network
