Patients who are concerned about symptoms which could indicate cancer should initially present to their own GP. A number of investigations can be carried out within Primary/Community Care service. Some patients may need to be referred to hospital for further investigation, and this should be co-ordinated by the GP. There are agreed referral guidelines between primary and secondary care which indicate which patients should be referred urgently.
Patients with symptoms that are highly suggestive of cancer will be seen more urgently. This will be in accordance with local referral guidelines.
