Patients to book own chest X-rays under new cancer self-referral pilot


good, deal with it without a report to the GP demanding "please urgently send 2ww referral to chest unit and let the patient know". IF you start it take the patient through the whole journey and take complete responsibility for it. We can then at least see some patients who actually want to be dealt with properly and not just over investigated.
