Head and Neck Cancer - Suspected

Use NICE guidance for 2WW criteria.  Check with each Trust's referral forms for specific referral criteria as these may vary. 

NB: If patient doesn't meet referral criteria for any tumour site, but GP has a gut feeling of malignancy or serious pathology and no other urgent pathway suitable then consider referring to Non Specific Symptoms Pathway Clinic. (NSSP) 

NB: If referring under 2WW please give patient 2WW Urgent Referral leaflet and What Happens Next? leaflet

The ENHT referral form can be accessed via the blue button on the left; this form is also available on Ardens.
