Spinal Tumour Referral Service

This form may be used to refer all NON 2 WEEK WAIT Spinal Tumour patients with normal neurology.   We will accept referrals from other hospitals as well as GPs. This form can also be used to request a spinal biopsy or MDT opinion.

Patients with abnormal neurology must be referred using the online MSCC referral form and discussed with the on-call spinal surgical team (contact us).

Please send all imaging via IEP to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. We are unable to provide an opinion without appropriate imaging and in some instances, we may ask you to perform further imaging.

Your referral may not be looked at over the weekend or out of hours. Normal working hours are 8.00am-4.00pm, Monday-Friday.
