How to refer - The London Sarcoma Service 

Referral contact address:

Patients who have sarcomas at non-limb/trunk sites (abdomen, gynaecological, head and neck, thorax), or who have metastatic disease, are best referred initially to UCH. We will arrange for the patient to be discussed in the most appropriate site-specific MDT.

Patients who have a suspected diagnosis of sarcoma, or require limb, trunk or spinal surgery, are best referred to RNOH. We have a weekly multi-disciplinary team (MDT) meeting at which all new referrals are discussed.
