FIT<10 secondary care clinical pathway

Following national guidance and in collaboration with NCL providers, NCL Cancer Alliance has developed pathways within the colorectal services to move patients who have appropriate symptoms from the 2WW pathway to the NCL FIT<10 secondary care pathway. 

If a patient is referred on the colorectal 2WW pathway and they have a FIT<10 but do not have a rectal/anal mass or iron deficiency anaemia, following a clinical consultation with the patient with no alarming symptoms, they may be moved to the FIT<10 pathway for follow up.

See Downloads for the pathway.
