English NHS patients will need to be referred by a GP for a second opinion or by a clinician in their local hospital (surgeon, gastroenterologist or oncologist). Please note that patients from Wales and Northern Ireland require additional local approval before we can offer an opinion and treatment. Patients from Scotland may require additional approval for certain pathologies.
The referral should be in the form of a letter. Please include the diagnosis and treatments to date including chemotherapy. Please also provide the supporting information, including:

- clinic notes,
- histopathology, and
