31 day pathway


The 31 day pathway is a national cancer target which applies to paediatric patients, adults with suspected testicular cancer, and adults with suspected acute leukaemia. These patients will have their first appointment within 7 days. If a diagnosis is confirmed they will receive treatment within 31 days of referral. (This is when the referral is received by the hospital)

The 31 day pathway will apply to all other patients following a decision to treat (treatment must start 31 days from consent). This includes first treatments and any further treatments
