Immediate action required to improve “Referral factors” in two week lower GI referrals

Following concerns around the quality of two week wait Cancer referrals a small review was conducted. The review specifically focused on Lower GI two week wait referrals and the findings established inadequacies and common similarities. 

It is vital that the correct information is received from the referring clinician to ensure these patients are seen quickly and appropriately. We urge all Clinicians within primary care to review the document below “Lower GI 2ww referral review and guidance”  and utilise the resources enclosed; including the latest referral form and the patient information handout.
