Results: Total 2-week-wait referrals = 622. Confirmed malignancy = 35. 181 patients underwent imaging, of which 76 had an ultrasound, 40 of these were ultrasound guided Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology.
Conclusion: The limited need for FNAC and ultrasound scans suggests that there is unlikely to be any significant benefit in implementing a one-stop clinic. A specific suspected cancer referral pathway in our unit has not resulted in a dramatic improvement in cancer diagnosis rates.
