Urgent Two Week Appointments – Advice and Support

Your doctor (GP) or dentist may have asked for you to have an urgent hospital appointment within two weeks. The ‘two-week’ appointment system is there so that any patient with symptoms that might indicate cancer can be seen by a specialist as quickly as possible.

Due to COVID-19 we have been working hard to ensure we can provide the necessary appointments, tests and investigations where it has been safe to do so. This may mean that you that you are still waiting for an appointment and or test / investigation.

We recognise that you may be worried that you have not yet been seen or that your symptoms are getting worse.

If you have any concerns and would like to speak to someone, you can contact our Macmillan team who can support and advise you whilst you await an appointment:
