Under the NHS Constitution, patients have the right to receive timely treatment. This means: If you have been referred for consultant-led treatment you should start your treatment within a maximum of 18 weeks, or if your GP has made an urgent referral where cancer is suspected, you should be seen by a specialist within two weeks.
If this is not possible, or you are concerned that you are waiting for longer, you should contact the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS).
