Priorities:

Provide funding to the endoscopy, pathology and imaging networks to deliver projects in support of RDS implementation. The early focus is likely to be:

  • Imaging: Support access to imaging for gynaecology and engage with all RDC pathway work
  • Pathology: transition 3 services to 7 day working, BMS upskilled to undertake cancer pathway service improvement with a focus on cancer turnaround times
  • Endoscopy: support implementation of upper and lower GI RDSs implementation including standardised referral practice, improving productivity, implementation of lynch syndrome testing, colon capsule endoscopy and cytosponge.
