The ‘two week waiting time standard’ was introduced in ‘new NHS’ and guarantees that everyone with suspected cancer will be able to see a specialist within two weeks of their practitioner deciding that they need an urgent referral.
In order to deal with these cases appropriately, all referrals from practitioners in this category must be:
- Marked urgent
- Mention ‘cancer’ or ‘treat under the two week standard’
- The Referral MUST be faxed to 0161 276 8756 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Whenever possible please use the referral form
