Should I book an Advanced Cancer Screening appointment if I have a sudden onset health problem?

You can also call NHS 111, but if your pain is severe, then you should go to A&E. If you are unable to travel due to the severity of your pain, the please call 999.

Should I have an Advanced Cancer Screening if I already have been diagnosed with cancer and/or having tests with another clinic/hospital (e.g. NHS)?

If you are currently having tests for cancer diagnosis or are already in a medical pathway for suspected cancer, then the Advanced Cancer Screening service is not appropriate. However, if you would like to see a consultant for a second opinion, we can arrange for you to see one of our consultants.
