Referral pathways are designed to ensure that those with suspected cancer symptoms are assessed and treated within specified time limits.
There are well established national and local policies to implement the referral pathways - click here for more detailed information.
For those concerned about symptoms that may be related to possible cancer the NHS conditions website can help to support contact with the GP.
There is always work behind the scenes to ensure that the people of Leeds and further afield have access to the best services and care possible.
The Leeds Cancer Centre website contains information on which team will be able to assist for specific cancers. For example, if someone has been told that they have cancer but have not yet been referred or seen a specialist, the conditions treated page will contain relevant information which includes contact advice to assist with any queries.
