Referrals to the Sheffield specialist sarcoma service

Referrals from General Practice should typically be organised on an urgent 2 week wait basis to the sarcoma out-patient service, using the dedicated 2 week wait proforma which is available to all GPs. The referral should be made after urgent investigation of a suspicious soft tissue mass with an ultrasound scan as per current NICE guidelines.

Referrals from hospital specialists/secondary care should be made on a dedicated Sarcoma service referral proforma, which is available to all Trusts within the region. The referrals should be emailed directly to sht-tr.Cancer-Sarcoma@nhs.net. Any queries about a referral can also be made to that address.

Please note that it is essential that you inform your patient about the referral and the need for further investigations such as biopsy or further imaging tests.
