Rapid Access Diagnostic Clinic
We have amended our Rapid Access Diagnostic clinic on e-RS and it is now mapped to the new clinic type ‘2WW Non-specific symptoms’. The services used to be mapped to General Medicine which has now been end-dated using transition date to allow for any patients referred under this to be processed. All referrals for this service must be made via the new clinic type which can be accessed as follows:
Clinic Type: 2ww Non-specific symptoms
Service Name: Rapid Access Diagnostic Service for non-specific symptoms - Guy's Site -RJ1
The Rapid Diagnostic Clinic (RDC) at GSTT is currently open and reviewing high risk patients. We are triaging all referrals and operating two clinic lists weekly for patients with urgent non-site specific symptoms that are highly suspicious for cancer. The current wait time for an appointment is approx.7 days. The service can be accessed on e-RS via 2WW Cancer of Unknown Primary or via General Medicine.

You can also call the team on 07922383126 to discuss clinical cases or seek advice via e-RS.
The RDC is also working closely with ED at St Thomas hospital to try and capture high risk patients who present as an emergency.
