Non-Specific Symptoms Rapid Diagnosis Service (NSS RDS) is a service for patients with symptoms suggestive of cancer that do not fit into a recognised cancer pathway e.g. night sweats, weight loss etc.

This is a diagnostic service, if patients are found to have a cancer, they will be referred to the relevant cancer pathway.

More information

Please refer into NSS RDS via e-referral using the proforma provided. Filter function tests should be performed and reviewed prior to referral being made, as these investigations may lead to a site- specific pathway e.g. raised FIT would be under colorectal pathway or other benign conditions.
