ingston Hospitak Overview of Project: 28 day Faster diagnosis Pilot
The independent Cancer Taskforce has recommended a new four-week (28 day) ‘referral to definitive diagnosis or ruling out of cancer’ pathway for cancer. Trusts across the country were invited to submit a bid to become one of five pilot sites. Over 30 bids were received by NHS England and 5 sites were selected to participate in this 18 month pilot. Kingston Hospital was the only pilot site selected in London. Other pilot sites include The Royal Bournemouth, Leeds, East Lancashire and Ipswich.
Kingston Hospital has chosen to apply the pilot to the lower GI, upper GI and Gynae (Endometrial) pathways. The new standard aims to create a more patient-centred approach to care, focused on communication with the patient that will streamline and accelerate diagnostic pathways. The new standard will reduce the time to treatment for patients diagnosed with cancer and the anxious time spent waiting for a diagnosis even in those people not ultimately diagnosed with cancer.
We are working in collaboration with our local Clinical Commisioning Groups (CCGs) and lead GPs to improve the integration of service between primary and secondary care, with the goal of helping patients get the diagnostic tests they need as soon as possible.
We are keeping patients at the forefront of the 28 day faster diagnosis initiative. Representatives from the patient led Improving Cancer Experience group, sit on the pathway redesign groups and are gathering crucial patient feedback about each step of our patients' journey.
