Suspected Cancer (2 week wait) referrals

If your GP is concerned that you have a symptom that could be caused by cancer, you will be referred to a suspected cancer clinic, where you will be seen within 2 weeks. We understand this can be a concerning time. The vast majority of patients referred to these clinics will turn out to have another cause apart from cancer for their symptoms.

The leaflets on this website explain more about why your GP has referred you to hospital, what it means
and what you need to do, the leaflets are available in 11 of the most common languages spoken in London. :
