Inter-hospital referral guideline and form for patients with suspected pancreatic adenocarcinoma
The NCCP, in collaboration with the specialist pancreatic cancer service, has developed a referral guideline and referral form for suspected pancreatic adenocarcinoma. This form is now used by hospitals to refer patients to the specialist pancreatic cancer services at either St Vincent’s University Hospital, Dublin (SVUH) or at the Mercy University Hospital, Cork.
Investigations and referral details are outlined in the pathway and referral form which may be downloaded and faxed.
An electronic referral may be made to the national pancreatic service in St Vincent’s Hospital, by downloading and completing a fillable form and following the process for secure transfer by email to the pancreatic team. Please note that this service is not currently available for referrals to the Southern Satellite Unit in Cork, who can receive referrals by fax or post.
