Abstract

Rectal bleeding is a common referral symptom to colorectal services. In a small percentage of people it can be a recognised symptom of bowel cancer warranting further investigation. With changes in government agendas and referral guidelines there is a vast increase in patients being referred on a fast-track cancer pathway. This paper will evaluate the evidence of the effectiveness of a straight to test, ‘one- stop’ rectal bleeding clinic in streamlining a service to meet these demands and diagnosing neoplasms of the left side of the bowel.
