A leaflet explaining the urgent two week referral system. Your General Practitioner has asked for you to be seen by a hospital specialist within two weeks. The “two week wait” appointment system was introduced so that patients with symptoms that could indicate cancer would be seen by a specialist as quickly as possible. Attending this appointment within the two week time-frame is very important because an early diagnosis and earlier access to treatment has been shown to improve outcomes. Available as download only.
