The Fast Track Office was established in March 2000, to be a central point for the management of referrals from Primary Care for patients with a suspected cancer. UH Bristol is committed to achieving the 2-week wait standard for all suspected cancer referrals, as well as meeting the 31 and 62-day standards for all cancer patients we treat.

To ensure patients are booked into an appropriate service, GPs are requested to use the Fast-Track (Cancer Suspected) referral proformas, which comply with the NICE guidelines. Where possible, referrals should be made via the Choose and Book System, or if this is unavailable they

should be faxed to the department on: 0117 342 3266. Further information on the NICE urgent referrals guidelines is available via the following website: www.nice.org.uk/CG027quickrefguide 

When making a referral to the Fast Track Office, ensure that the patient's home address and telephone number are correct. If available, also include a mobile telephone number or daytime contact number in order to help us contact the patient promptly. Please let the patient know that they should hear from UH Bristol within 48 hours of the referral being made. If they do not hear, they should contact the surgery. All patients (unless there is a valid clinical reason) should be given the information sheet which details what happens following a suspected cancer referral.

If you have any queries about a patient you have referred, contact the Fast Track Office on one of the numbers shown above.

If you have any general queries relating to Cancer Services at UH Bristol please contact Hannah Marder, Cancer Service Manager on 0117 342 1039.
