Please find below the GP Matrix, a useful tool to provide you with the basic requirements when you are referring a patient to BHRUT.
As well as using the GP Matrix, we’d ask you to follow these eight rules for all cancer referrals.
Day 28 Faster Diagnosis – radiology request forms at time of referral
With the introduction of the Day 28 Faster Diagnosis coming into force the way we tell our patients whether cancer is diagnosed or ruled out has now changed. This means patients should receive a definitive diagnosis or ruling out of cancer within 28 days of a referral. As a result of this new standard, we need your help to do or request bloods.
Please complete and attach the Radiology request form at the time of referral. This will prevent your patients being delayed on their pathway. Please refer to GP Matrix for specific details relating to each tumour groups.
With this new standard, there will be big opportunities to centre the pathway on the patients, focus on better communication with patients and our primary care colleagues and enable speedier and more efficient diagnosis and treatment.
