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.
