Suspected Cancer Clinic Referrals – Fast Track referrals from Emergency Department or Acute Medical Unit:
If you see any patient with suspected cancer who is fit enough to go home from ED/AMU they can be referred directly to the relevant clinic using a single online form, “Suspected Cancer One Week Referral form”.

Please note that this is equivalent to GP 2 week referral (TWR) but it’s quicker as it’s an appointment within 1 week if seen in A&E or medics and fit for discharge.
The referral will be dealt with by the Cancer Referrals Office (NOT AOS).
They do not need a separate referral from their GP. Please note the patients will be seen by the specific team (i.e. UGI, lung, etc.) and not by AOS team.
