Diagnosing symptomatic cancer in the NHS

In a linked article, Møller and colleagues1 present a neat analysis of the use of the fast track referral pathway for patients with suspected cancer in 2009 (two week wait system) by English general practices and subsequent cancer mortality in patients from these practices. In 2009, this fast track pathway enabled access to a specialist opinion or diagnostic test within two weeks for eligible patients. Møller and colleagues studied three measures: the referral ratio (each practice’s use of the two week wait system compared with other practices), detection rate (percentage of cancers in a practice that were detected via the two week clinics), and conversion rate (proportion of patients who went through the two week wait system and who were then shown to have cancer). Practices with a high referral ratio and those with a high detection rate had reduced cancer mortality, although the conversion rate showed no association.

Put patients first and give the money back

John Townsend wants to say thank you before he dies. “All this bullshit about the NHS being rubbish is not true,” he writes this week (doi:10.1136/bmj.h4706). “I’ve been treated so wonderfully that you wouldn’t believe it.” Although his cancer returned, his satisfaction with the promptness of his care suggests that his GP used the fast track referral pathway for suspected cancer. And we now have evidence that this pathway works. Henrik Møller and colleagues found better outcomes among patients whose doctors made more use of fast track referral (doi:10.1136/bmj.h5102). On this basis, failing to fast track patients with suspected cancer looks like poor practice.
