Lung Cancer 2 week wait referral
Following referral to the Lung Cancer Pathway you will be discussed in our Fast Track Meeting that happens every weekday between a Lung Cancer Physician, Thoracic Radiologist and Lung Cancer CNS.
You will then be contacted by telephone to discuss the plan and investigations needed.
In order to reduce any delays we often telephone to discuss tests and further investigation. You will be invited to a face to face clinic when we have the diagnosis and treatment plan.
National Optimal Lung Cancer Pathway (NOLCP)
This optimal pathway is primarily designed to improve outcomes in lung cancer by encouraging best practice, reducing variation, and reducing delays in diagnosis, staging and treatment. It is also designed to meet the waiting time targets as set out in the Independent Cancer Taskforce report.
