All new patient referrals are triaged by the oncologist before an appointment is made for your patient.
You can generate your own referral to a named medical oncologist with attached histology/pathology/radiology reports and send it via medical objects/Argus/Healthlink/Fax/email, otherwise referrals made out to the practice are seen by the oncologist on call that week.
The oncologist will respond to the new referral within 1-3 working days. Your patients will be notified about an appointment time by phone and sent a pre-appointment letter by mail.
The oncologist will correspond with you via regular letters and we will contact you if your patient does not attend their initial appointment.
Our Oncologists actively support and participate in a number of regular multidiscipinary meetings within the AWRCC. The following is a list of these meetings your referred patients may be involved in:
