Lung Cancer - For Clinicians

We continue to triage all the TWW referrals, but as of January 1st 2018 the LCNS will also be reviewing all abnormal CXR with a high suspicion of lung cancer and requesting a full staging CT scan.

We will also inform the patient and GP practice and request an urgent TWW referral.

When you send your patients for CXR, please advise them that depending on the results they may be contacted directly from the hospital.

To enable us to request further investigations please ensure the TWW form is completed in as much detail as possible, such as smoking status, performance status, anticoagulation medication and relevant past medical history.
