Advice for Referrers
Peninsula Liver and HPB Unit
All local patients with a suspected pancreas/ biliary/ liver tumour should be referred by the Upper GI Two Week Wait system, Referrals can be made via the Choose and Book or by letter. All patients with painless jaundice and therefore a suspected pancreatic/ liver tumour should be referred to the jaundice clinic. For tertiary patients, if a diagnosis has already been made then a written referral can be e-mailed directly to our consultants for surgical / MDT opinion and or discussion before referral via the video-link MDT.

Consultants can be contacted via their secretaries, or via switchboard if urgent. Secretaries can answer most queries regarding existing appointments and booked investigations.
