Non-specific Symptoms 2-week-wait pathway
A new 2-week-wait pathway has been developed for patients who present with non-specific symptoms (NSS). This NSS pathway should be used for patients with the following non-specific symptoms
If patients present with these NSS, but a likely site for the cancer is identified, the patient should be referred on the site-specific 2WW pathway.
If a likely site cannot be identified, please arrange the following tests so the results will be available for the NSS pathway team
These tests can be selected as a “group” on DART, pick “CA Non-specific symptoms” male or female.
The referral form should be available on your clinical system, and should be sent to email@example.com
This pathway is only available for patients being referred to ULHT. NWAFT have a similar pathway (Rapid Diagnostic Service), more information about this is available on the LMC website. CCG is working to develop a similar pathway with NLAG.
