Please make all referrals (urgent and non-urgent) within 1 day in accordance with the National Collaborating Centre for Cancer guidance 2015.
Note: perimenopausal women with an endometrial thickness of more than 5mm should not be referred on a 2WW and should be referred to the heavy menstrual bleeding clinic* after assessment and management in primary care as per NICE guidance.
There is no heavy menstrual bleeding clinic at SWFT – Please refer via routine ERS
When a patient is referred on the Gynaecology two week wait (2WW) pathway at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire (UHCW) an ultrasound scan is included in the patient journey.
