Cancer Care Pathway


There are several pathways for entry into Cork University Hospital, depending on what symptoms you are displaying. There are rapid access clinics for patients who may have a possible cancer in their lung, breast or prostate. For other possible cancers, you may be referred directly to a Consultant Haematologist (e.g. leukaemia), or some other medical specialist. Sometimes, patients present with particular symptoms that could be any one of a number of diseases – either through the Emergency Department or the Outpatients route – and these patients may end up following a cancer pathway for treatment.
