The Lung Faster Diagnosis Service sees patients who have an abnormal chest X-ray or symptoms that may be linked to a lung cancer. The service operates from Monday to Friday, but investigations may also take place at weekends.
The Lung Faster Diagnosis Service at Kingston Hospital follows the standards set out in the ‘National Optimal Lung Cancer Pathway’. The aim is to ensure that any patient referred under the suspicion of lung cancer undergoes all necessary diagnostic tests and receives communication ruling out, or confirming, a cancer diagnosis within 28 days.
The team includes:
Clinical Nurse Specialist
Consultant Respiratory Physician
We provide advice and support to patients throughout their journey to the point of diagnosis. If patients are diagnosed with a lung cancer, their care is seamlessly passed onto the lung cancer nurse specialists and oncology teams.
