Local Pathway

Refer to the local pathway for suspected Pancreatic Cancer on the South West Clinical Network website which gives advice on when to suspect pancreatic cancer and how to initiate appropriate investigations and referral.

Referral - Suspected pancreatic cancer

Please use the Upper GI 2WW form to make referrals for suspected pancreatic cancer which can be found in the Upper GI -USC (2WW) section.

If advised to refer into MDT, then please submit a 2WW referral to the relevant secondary care team who will ensure that all the required information is available to enable an effective MDT discussion.

At time of referral please issue the BNSSG Understanding Your Urgent Fast Track Referral patient information leaflet.
