2 Week Urgent Referrals

Your GP may refer you urgently to the hospital if they feel that your symptoms need further investigation by a specialist.  There are many common conditions that symptoms could be linked to, including the possibility of cancer.  Having a 2 week urgent referral does not necessarily mean that you have cancer, it means that you need some investigations quickly to help find out what is wrong with you.  If you are referred under the 2 Week Urgent Referral Pathway you will be seen by a specialist within 2 weeks to enable early diagnosis of your symptoms.  Should your GP refer you for an 2 week urgent referral appointment it is very important for these reasons that you attend your appointment.  Patient referred via this route will be provided with an information leaflet with further information.  If you have been referred via the 2 week urgent referral pathway and have any worries and concerns please contact the surgery and ask to discuss your concerns with a clinician.
