Suspected Urological Cancer - Referral Guidance

All patients with suspected urological cancer should be referred, by the General Practitioner to whom the patient presents, using the ‘two-week wait’ referral process.

Any patient, with suspected cancer, referred from any other source should be allocated an urgent (2/52) out-patient appointment by the vetting consultant.

Patients with haematuria should have access to a dedicated rapid investigation clinic via the Multi Assessment and Diagnosis clinic at the two acute Trust hospitals.

Patients with suspected prostate cancer should have access to a dedicated rapid investigation clinic via the Multi Assessment and Diagnosis clinic at the two acute Trust hospitals or the RAPAC at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital.

Screening investigations may be arranged before the first appointment, but should not delay the appointment. Each patient should meet their key worker (usually the CNS) and the core MDT member primarily responsible for their care (or a deputy) at the initial diagnosis out-patient appointment.
