Headline

More cancers diagnosed via GP urgent referrals as emergency diagnoses fall

Comment

Usual "spin" for you. Did 7 years of cancer data and all the emergency cancer diagnosis were either subsidiary to an appropriate admission or patient opted to go to A/E due to bleeding/calamity etc. Other interesting points were repeated DNA's or avoidance of GP when family suggested attendance and best of the lot was 2WW referal not quick enough!
