Two week wait (2ww) referrals

To refer a patient with suspected cancer, download and complete the relevant suspected cancer referral form on the Health London Partnership website.

You can then refer via NHS e-Referral (the preferred method) or a number of clinical systems. Include the patient’s correct contact details on the referral, including both a mobile and landline phone number, where available.

Inform patients

Let patients know you are making a suspected cancer referral, and that we will contact them to arrange an outpatient appointment, which will take place within two weeks.

Patient information leaflets

Give patients any relevant literature they might need at this stage and discuss it with them. A Pan-London patient information leaflet about suspected cancer referral is available in several languages.
